Leather worker Ruth Pullan specialises in creating hand stitched bags and accessories using high quality British materials. Join her for this leather work workshop which will give you the basic skills needed for working with leather. Using these skills you will make a belt and a simple coin purse. By the end of the day you will be able to go on to apply these techniques to your own projects.
Over the course of the day you will learn how to: dye and prepare leather, hand stitch using the two needle saddlery method, fit buckles and other fastenings, edge and finish the leather.
