Description – 3 Day Multi-Skills Course
Begin each course day with an exciting new project! This progressional course is designed to develop your traditional leather-working skills over 3 days. Perfect for both complete beginners and for students who would like to experience working on different projects, simultaneously. The course will introduce students to three different areas of leatherwork: Wet-moulding, small leather goods and cylindrical box making or traditional belt making. Different tools, methods and leather are required for each, so students can expect an interesting and informative 3 days!
During the course students will make 3 items, each introducing a new basic technique while building on the previous ones learnt:
Day 1: Wet moulding leather – Small moulded bag or belt pouch
Day 2: Creating small leather goods – multi pocket purse or wallet.
Day 3: Choose from; Basic cylindrical box making or Making leather belts fitted with traditional buckles & solid rivets.
There will be a small choice of projects and pre-made patterns to choose and work from at each stage of the course. Students can also select from our range of leather, with the option of combining colours for their projects.
NB: students shouldn’t be concerned about the course pace as basic skills such as hand stitching can be completed at home if necessary.
