Event description

Description

Learn artisan skills- craft your own clutch, pouch, wallet or tassel keyring. Perfect for a Luxury Christmas gift!

First we will enjoy some complimentary homemade cuisine and drinks. Then you will get a studio tour of the luxury hand-crafted leather products, materials and tools before we will teach you the core basics of traditional leatherwork and you get started making your very own piece. This is a unique course for beginners or the more experienced, no prior experience of leatherwork is necessary.

At the end of the workshop you will have hand-crafted your very own accessory gift for yourself, him or her using a high quality Italian leather. Please note you will not be using a sewing machine, we will teach you the skills to construct your design by hand.

You will:

  • Choose your design, leather and colour of thread or thong
  • Use a pre-made pattern template
  • Prepare the leather for hand-stitching using a hole punch tool
  • Dye the edges of your leather in your chosen colour
  • Construct your piece using saddle stitching, leather braiding or leather whip-stitching
  • Personalize your piece with your initials on an embossed label
  • Each piece will come with either a gift box or dust bag.

If you finish and time permitting you'll also be able to make another accessory of your choice, subject to an additional charge.

Don't worry, if you don’t finish your piece in time, we can complete it and post it for you. (postage extra charge)
