About the Course
During this one day workshop, you will learn the basics of Leatherwork including how to cut and prepare leather using a template, preparing for and using harness needles to stitch as well as how to finish your product to a high standard.
You will make a luggage tag and your choice of either a Coin Purse or Credit Card wallet.
Your tutor for the day will be Stuart Marriott, who having initially trained as a diamond mounter and working for 20+ years in London’s West End Jewellery industry, changed direction entirely. During a trip to the US, Stuart met the renowned saddle maker Monte Beckman, who inspired him to transfer his traditional making skills to leatherwork.
