This course is suitable for beginners but is also a great follow up for students who have already attended one of our shorter courses. The course will begin with students learning the basic leather skills (or refreshing your memory of them) by firstly learning and practicing how to hand stitch leather. You will learn marking out, choosing appropriate leather, hand saddle stitching and raw edge finishing. Following this everyone will make one small unlined leather backpack each. You will work from a prepared pattern so everyone's bags will be the same size and shape, however you can choose from our leather to have your own bespoke colour combinations and make small alterations such as changing stitch colour, choosing the buckles, etc. so your finished bag will be unique to you. Course runs from 10am– 5pm. Complimentary tea and coffee and a light lunch are included in the price. All leather courses are run from our spacious purpose built workshop. Group courses have a maximum of 4 students so each person receives plenty of individual tuition. All courses are run by Sarah Williams, who has experience of working in the leather goods industry as a designer and sample maker and now runs small leather goods label Williams Handmade as well as teaching leather skills in Universities. All courses are designed so that you can take away your new skills and continue to make more leather goods at home. Sarah aims to make all courses both informative and enjoyable in a relaxed, friendly and productive atmosphere.
