ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Leather worker Ruth Pullan specialises in creating hand stitched bags and accessories using high quality British materials. Join her for this workshop which will give you the basic skills needed to make a small leather bag.
You will learn how to:
- dye and condition natural vegetable tanned leather
- stitch using the two needle traditional saddler's stitch
- bevel and burnish raw edges for a professional finish
- fit buckles and fastenings to complete your bag.
Please contact us/Ruth before the course if you have a particular colour in mind.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Welcome drinks : fresh coffee & home made biscuits, a lovely 2 course Aga lunch served in our farmhouse kitchen or outside in the Greystoke Cycle Cafe Tea Garden as soon as it's warm enough. To finish off the day, a freshly made Cream Tea (including Aga-baked scones, cream and jam).
Our days are considered special treats; many come back time and time again and often combine it with a short break to the Lake District.
We have been hosting and organising 'Quirky Workshops' since 2005 from our friendly family run Cycle Cafe Tea Garden on the northern fringes of the Lake District. All our tutors are carefully hand selected experts and professionals and many considered as leading nationally in their field.
Course dates are flexible; please get in touch for the next available date.
