Introduction to leatherwork with Armitage Leather



During this one to one course a basic introduction to leather work is given, during which we will examine the tools, materials and process of making items from leather. In this course we will touch on Design, Measuring, Cutting, Marking & Stitching and examples of different styles. Whilst 8 hours is not enough to cover of all the techniques and processes, you will have sufficient instruction and appreciation of the principals to continue at your own pace. Nigel Armitage is registered with and insured by the Guild of Master Craftsmen along with being an NVQ A1 Assessor. Please note: the Craft Course Diary does not sync with the business diary so please check the website for correct available dates before booking.
