Leather Waterbottle Workshop
Sat 6 May 2017, 10:00 – 13:00 BST
This workshop will take you through the process of making a wet molded leather waterbottle from a pre-cut veg tan template.
First you will mark, make the holes and hand stitch the the two faces of the waterbottle together. Then you will learn about wet molding and form the shape of the water bottle.
We will then show you how you waterproof the bottle and provide the materials for you to do this at home once the leather has dried out.
We also offer an optional extra to this workshop for those who would rather be supervised while they waterproof the bottle. This is usually on a mutually agreeable date by prior arrangement. The cost for this is £20.00.
The price includes tuition, use of the tools and the materials to make your waterbottle.
Tea & Coffee will be provided. Please bring your own lunch and any soft drinks / snacks you require.
Closed toe footwear should be worn. If you wish to protect your clothing please bring a suitable apron. As we use a stitching pony we advise wearing trousers rather than a skirt or kilt.
