Event description

Description

Experience traditional saddlery techniques with SABEL Saddlery at Heals and learn how to hand-stitch, hand-burnish and personalise a luggage tag/keyring.

A short course for absolute beginners, QEST Scholar Mia Sabel, a qualified Saddler, will teach you the very basics of traditional saddlery, including a short demonstration on leather, preparation and tools, and then hands-on hand-stitching, hand-burnishing and personalisation.

Over the course of the workshop, you’ll try out these techniques, learning how to double-stitch and create your own personalised leather luggage tag/keyring which you can take home. You can choose from a selected range of leather and thread colours.

This workshop is perfect for anyone interested in working with leather, and we will provide you with a pair of needles and polishing cloth/gum to take home, and supply you with a document containing a list of tools, specialist suppliers, other training courses and the basic equipment you’ll need to get you started.
