Leather work and leather-craft courses, classes and workshops taught all across the UK. Leather improves with age, which is why crafting something out of leather is extremely satisfying. Not only can you make something stylish, but it will have a durability that means you can enjoy it for years to come. Leather craft involves cutting, sewing (often hand stitching), dyeing, lining, punching holes and generally fashioning your piece of hide into bags, belts, shoes, saddles, waistcoats, chaps, book covers and anything else you want to learn how to make. Leather workers are quite a rare find these days; leather work teachers even more so. The leather courses on these pages below cover skills such as leather bag, shoe and belt making, upholstery, leather dyeing, carving, embossing and stamping. Browse leatherwork courses across the UK.
