In a relaxed and friendly setting enjoy practical and informative learning. You'll learn the basics of leatherwork, all about the materials and tools, cutting and preparing natural vegetable tanned leather, and traditional hand stitching techniques, as well as fixing hardware and personalisation. These workshops are tailored to your requirements and are recommended if you have something particular you'd like to make. You can even use our stock of templates or design your own pattern. All hardware, and a choice of natural vegetable tanned leather is provided in a range of colours. Each leather hide is individually selected for its beautiful natural qualities, complete with hallmarks, scars and markings from the tanning process - a testament to the natural origin of the hide.
These workshops are run to requirement so please contact us for available dates.
Tea and homemade cake is provided to keep your energy and creative levels up, and all materials are included in the price. Please bring a packed lunch for full day workshops.
