Hi there, Isaac here
first of all, I just want to say thank you for taking the time to visit, and of course, see if this might be a good fit for each other.
I started Fieldwork Co back in 2016. But I was a hobbyist leatherworker for a long time before that. It started as a side-hustle and a passion project. I loved creating, and I still do.
I've been full time for just over two years now. I work from home, while at the same being a father of three. My wife Kristen manages all our customer service, and some logistics as well. We employ a wonderful mother in Edmonton who sews most of our Waxed Canvas products. I have been running production on all of our leather products, and as our Camera Straps are some of our most popular products, that is where you come in
I am looking for a Leather Worker that is experienced working with leather, specifically vegetable-tanned leather. Every hide is different, and there-for our process not always exactly the same, it takes an experienced hand to run over a raw-hide, and gauge how much oil to apply, how much buffering it will require. There are some things that only experience can teach. But, that being said, I will be providing lots of training, and continual support, as it is my goal to ensure the utmost quality in all of our products.
I am looking to hire someone to support me in the production of Camera Straps. Training will be provided at an hourly wage, in our studio near Jackfish Lake, you would have to be able to travel for that (the number of visits would depend on your experience level) and from there you could work in your own shop, doing piecework.
To apply, please send an email to email@example.com
make the subject line "Job" so I can easily find them
Some leather tools you will need:
- Arbor Press (to press logo into the leather)
- Strap Cutter
- Leather Knife
- Table to dye Leather
- Long ruler for cutting the hide
- Steel Plate (for hammering rivets)
- Rivet Splitter (strong pliers will work)
