KJLD Leather Course
Leatherwork can be a little overwhelming when you are first starting out. A lot of the answers can be found online, but you can end up getting a huge range of answers and different opinions for one question.
In this course I want to simplify the craft and make it enjoyable, by offering you tools and tips that you can trust to give you a reliable outcome.
My intention for this course is to give you the confidence to take your leatherwork in any direction you choose. Whether that be, as a hobby or to eventually sell your pieces. I have created the course I wish I had when I was first starting out.
This course is in both video and written form.
Video portions include:
-How to use your 6 basic tools
-How to dye
-How to resist
-How to antique
-How to transfer your designs to leather
Written portions include:
-How to make watch bands
-How to make a belt
-How to make a hat patch
-How to make a women’s clutch wallet
-How to make a bi fold wallet
-How to make a card holder
-How to make earrings
-How to make a bouquet wrap
Each with step by step guides, dimensions and printable art patterns for each project.
-A list of recommended stamping tools
-A list of other recommended shop tools
-Recommended places to buy leather and other products used in this course
This course was created and intended for beginners, but I hope even a crafter with a bit of experience could implement some tools and tips from this course to further improve their skills.

This course is exactly what I needed. I had some tools, but I didn’t know where to start. This course gave me the confidence to jump in and the guidance to understand how to use the tools and where to buy supplies. The main project is a great video tutorial from start to end! The other projects instructions are clear and detailed. So impressed with this course. It is so worth it!

I have nothing but good things to say about Kasey and her Leather Course! Before the course was even a thing I would message Kasey about all things leather and she never hesitated to give me advice and tips to better my leather skills! As a beginner sometimes it can be intimidating to ask for help because some people are not always wanting to help but that has never been the case with Kasey! Working through the course I have already learned so much and her process just makes sense and helps to eliminate the frustrations of leatherwork! I have loved having Kasey to work with and consider someone to look up to with leatherwork and I recommend her course to anyone who is thinking about joining leatherwork! Did I mention she is the most encouraging person ever! Like I said you will not be disappointed with this course!

I wish I had accessibility to this course a year ago when I first started leather work. It would have shorten the learning curve exponentially. But even now having many projects under my belt. I still have learned so much from this course. The difference in the quality of my work from before this course til now is amazing. Kasey is an amazing teacher and I promise this course is worth every penny!!

This course has been amazing!! Even though I had already been making a few things here and there this answered so many questions. It’s also been incredibly helpful to have access to a private Instagram account where I can directly ask any questions to Kasey, her response is always quick and helpful. It’s a fantastic resource and I’m glad I invested in it. Thanks for taking the time to create this Kasey!!

This course has already taught me so much, and I can’t wait to learn more. Kasey has been nothing but helpful when it comes to helping me get tools ordered, and start out. Its great to know that I can reach out to her with questions, and she is there to help. This course is worth every penny and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get started with leather work!

I was a fan of KJLD long before Kasey offered her leather course and she was my inspiration that it was indeed possible to teach myself this skill and also to start a business of my own; I’ll be forever grateful. Time and time again, I have been truly inspired by her commitment to detail, quality, her customers, and her complete openness to myself and others who have taken her time over and over to ask so many questions. When I first started leatherworking in Feb 2020, Kasey had not launched her course yet but to keep things going for me, kindly offered information that is now part of the course to get me through my first daunting purchases etc. I looked all over for courses etc. and could not find any online courses (like at all – besides YouTube tutorials) and the in-person classes I found were expensive and the most basic were, at nearest, hours away from me. Having Kasey’s course prior to starting leatherwork would have been HUGE for me and saved so much money and time. As it was, several months AFTER I started, I still purchased this course anyway – I honestly knew that even if by this time I had self-taught most things in the course, I more than owed Kasey by this point after the countless questions. Upon reviewing the course, I have found it to be highly detailed and the basics are more than generously covered. If you’re thinking about starting leather working or you’re new to the trade, this course will be one of your best and most valued purchases. Even though I have been leatherworking for several months on my own prior to purchasing, I’m still picking up tip and tricks and looking forward the remaining lessons/projects I have yet to complete. If you have questions on anything contained in the course of are looking for feedback as you learn and try new things, Kasey is lighting fast to respond, very open, and always very encouraging. Truthfully – I can’t recommend her or her course more emphatically.

Thank you Kasey for creating this course and all the content to go with it. I spent so many hours searching YouTube for helpful videos and so much wasted money on tools and things I didn’t need, when I should have just bought this course sooner. She literally answered all my questions I needed answered and gave me all the tips I needed to correct what I had been doing wrong. I recommend this to anyone starting out or has been doing it for awhile and wants to time to their work. I’ve noticed a huge difference in my work , and have had a lot of other people comment on how much I have improved since buying the course also. Thanks again!

This course has helped me come so far in less than a year of leather work! She has been right there to answer any and all of my questions, even when they are all right there in the course if I would just read more! HIGHLY recommend!

Taking this course was the best decision I made! It transformed my leatherwork exponentially. Kacey is extremely talented and she poured her heart and soul into this course. This course gives you all the tools you need to learn and become a talented leather worker. Before taking this course I had no idea what tools, thickness of leather, and supplies to use. This course contains a list of everything you need and I found that extremely helpful. Not only is this course AMAZING… Kacey is also amazing. She always will answer any questions that I have. She’s always willing to share advice with me to improve my work. You won’t regret purchasing this course!!

I absolutely love the online course Kasey has created. Previously, I have taken a few in-person lessons from another maker. It got me going. If you are anything like me, I soon forgot the little things that were taught in person. What I love about this course is that I can keep coming back to her resources to guide me on my way to designing my own craft. Thank you Kasey! Since purchasing the course I have sent her a few pieces and she responds. I love her good vibes and encouragement to keep getting better! This course is a must if you have ever had the desire to learn the craft of leatherworking! 10/10 would recommend.

This course is great! I’m only half way through it and I’ve learned so much! I’ve previously bought other products from her (beautiful bouquet wrap and hey dudes for my wedding in July and they are amazing!) Even though I’m learning how to make everything I’ll still be sure to buy her products in the future! she’s what made me want to do this! The gentle reminders to be kind to yourself while your learning is so helpful! I’m a visual person and the short videos are amazing along with the written information! Plus she is awesome about answering questions and helping when I have questions! 10/10 recommend ????

Wow! I don’t even know where to begin! When I started I just bought a small leather kit and knew I wanted to try tooling leather. I had no idea I would have made this much progress. Kasey is the most helpful, kind, and talented person. Seriously, she is always willing to help out or give advice. No secrets with this course she put together all her years of learning experience into one course. I have made earrings, bouquet wrap, keychains, and bar necklaces! I cannot wait to try new projects in the course!!!!!!

I’ve always wanted to get into leather work, this course has been a game changer! Not only is it super easy to use, it cuts the learning process in half by not having to search through YouTube videos. Plus you can work as fast or slow as you want it’s always there. Kasey is informative and super knowledgeable in leather work and it shows not only in her work but this course she has put together! Highly recommend if your wanting to start and don’t know where to begin.
