What's in Your Pouch? Leather Workshop

  • The Rockwell Museum 111 Cedar St Corning, NY, 14830 United States (map)

Who are you? What do you treasure? Make a leather pouch by sewing pieces of leather together and then embellish them with painted designs, beads, fringe, metal and feathers. Then, add a cord to wear your pouch in style!

Throughout history, many cultures have had different types of pouches, whether it’s Native American medicine bags, Cowboy saddle bags, Scottish sporrans (waist pouches), French paniers (baskets), purses or wallets. Pouches can represent a container for what we treasure. These special items often include coins, tinder for fire, sacred objects, seeds, herbs, pine cones, rocks, tobacco, bones, teeth, rattles, stones, animal fur, locks of hair and photos. Certain items would be kept for protection, good luck, healing or hunting.

45-minute time slots starting at 10 am, 11 am, 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm, and 2:30 pm
