Join leatherworker Ruth Pullan for an intensive day learning to make a small hand stitched satchel style leather bag.
On this day you will learn about leatherworking tools and techniques. You will dye and decorate pre prepared leather pattern pieces for the body and gusset of the bag, cut and make holes for buckles, straps and attachments, and then stitch and finish your beautiful bag to take home.
You can choose to make your bag using the natural leather colour or Ruth has a selection of water-based dyes available. Choose from grass green, brick red, yellow ochre, or conker brown.
Previous knowledge of leather work will be assumed so you must previously have attended Ruth’s introductory workshop or similar and be familiar with saddle stitching…. there is quite a lot of stitching which can be hard on the hands so you really need to know that you can stay the course!
There is an additional cost of approximately £30 for materials payable in cash to the tutor on the day
Please also bring an apron with you and a warm extra layer as windows will be opened during the duration of the workshop to ensure the room has adequate ventilation.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
We will provide morning and afternoon refreshments and a light lunch.
