In this technology-filled world we live in; most leather products are mass-produced and lack uniqueness. We often buy these products not knowing where the designs originated and how they are made. Nothing compares to the satisfaction of creating something with your own hands.
During our leathercrafting workshop, you will be encouraged to create your own bespoke items from leather. The workshop is designed to be a thoroughly immersive experience and a unique opportunity to hand-make your own leather item. The different leather projects to choose from include a Knife sheath/multitool case, Wallet, dog collar or a set of coasters.
Our leather workshop covers patternmaking through to completing your own leather project. Fern, our leather artisan will share her knowledge about leather and the crafting process – the different types and quality, leather care, types of tools. Participants are then guided through all the practical steps to apply the core skills of leather making creating their own unique leather project. This experience will have you walking away with your finished leather project feeling very satisfied with your achievements. This leather workshop is suitable for people with no prior experience.
All tools, leather and equipment are provided in the fee to make whichever leather project you choose. Participants should bring a craft knife/Stanley knife, pencil, pen and note pad or paper. If you wish to make a sheath or multitool case, you will need to bring the knife or tool along. For health and safety, you must wear covered shoes and have hair tied back.
