Mini Leather Satchel Workshop - Sunday 23rd May 2021
We are delighted to introduce this fabulous new workshop to our programme. After all, who wouldn’t want to make a beautiful leather satchel?
During your day with us, you will learn how to; dye and prepare leather, hand stitch using the traditional two needle saddler’s method, fit buckles and fastenings, and bevel and burnish the leather for a super professional finish.
Your tutor will guide you through the making process to complete your leather satchel, which will measure approximately 25cm x 20cm x 10cm.
The workshop will run from 9.30am until 5.00pm. All the materials you need to complete your leather satchel are included in the price, as are drinks and your lunch which will be a ‘buffet in a box’ prepared by our local farm shop. You will be provided with a workshop apron to wear during your day however, due to the nature of the workshop, we suggest wearing sensible clothing.
This workshop will provide you with a strong set of basic skills that will enable you to continue your leather work at home, applying these techniques to your own projects.
Please be aware that a good amount of stitching is required to make your leather satchel so some experience of stitching is necessary. You may wish to bring a thimble with you too!
