In a relaxed and friendly setting this 4 hour workshop is the perfect introduction to leatherworking. In a small group of 4 - 6 students 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. You'll have opportunity to personalise your cardholder so you'll go home with a beautiful unique handmade item.
Tea and homemade cake is provided to keep your energy and creative levels up, and all materials are included in the price. A choice of natural vegetable tanned leather 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.
If you enjoy this introduction to leatherwork and would like to continue making some other projects at home, you'll be able to purchase a ‘Beginner’s Toolkit’ and a choice of vegetable tanned leather to get you started!
