Over the two days you will learn traditional leatherwork skills and use high-quality, vegetable-tanned leather to make a collection of three small leather accessories: Notebook Holder, Card Holder & Everyday Pouch. You will have a choice of leather colours and each item can be personalised with your initials.
You will begin the day by discussing and learning about leather and the core tools that will be used during the course. You will then start making your items from start to finish, learning the core basics of traditional leatherwork including marking and cutting out leather, preparing the leather for hand stitching, saddle stitching by hand, bevelling, burnishing, finishing and embossing.
At the end of the two days you will have made your very own collection of small leather accessories.
Lunch, refreshments and materials are all included. This experience is on-site at Woodend Mill in Ashton-under-Lyne, near Manchester.
