The Cobbler

After a piece of leather has been scraped and tanned it is ready to be cut into useful shapes to make shoes, belts and bags. 

For our first trip to the cobbler the children made belts with special interlocking pieces designed for children to use.  

   
 
Once the belts were assembled the hardware was hammered together.

   


The children modeled their belts.

   

The cobbler also made as a specialty backpack.

  

It was very exciting for the children to visit the cobbler and we hope to visit him again soon for another project!
