About this Event
This class will teach the safe use and effective handling of the Thor GA441 cylinder arm industrial leather sewing machine (Chris Hemsworth).
WE WILL BE MEETING IN THE CREATIVE ARTS STUDIO
As part of this class, you will learn:
Basic operation of the machine
Proper sewing technique on a cylinder arm machine (it's different from regular sewing)
Use of specialized features on the machine
Applications, limitations, cool stuff you can do
Every student must successfully demonstrate safe operation of the machine to be cleared for use.
No previous sewing classes required.
Special Considerations and Warnings
This machine can be dangerous if used improperly. It can sew through 48oz of leather fairly easily, and can go through your hand even easier. I stress this because the technique for sewing pieces on this machine are different than on a regular machine.
If you cannot demonstrate safe handling of the machine, I will work with you, but if you cannot safely operate the machine I will not clear you for general use.
