Please note price indicated is for an exclusive 1-2-1 leather belt making workshop where the participant will be the only student.
We have recently achieved the Visit England "We're Good to Go" accreditation.
This one day course will introduce you to the principles of hand crafted leatherwork through the making of your own hand stitched, hand dyed, leather belt.
A hands on course during which you will learn how to mark out, cut and dye vegetable tanned leather to make a belt. You will then prepare it for stitching and practice the technique of saddle stitch. The course will also show you how to burnish the edges of the belt and finish the leather.
Closed toe footwear should be worn. If you wish to protect your clothing (from dye etc.) please bring a suitable apron. As we use a stitching pony to hold the work we also recommend wearing trousers instead of a skirt or kilt.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
The price includes tuition, use of the tools and materials including the leather, paper etc.
Individually packaged cold drinks & individually wrapped snacks will be provided. Please bring your own lunch. (We are not currently providing hot drinks as part of our Covid-19 measures.)
