About the Course

Come and experience the absorbing and tactile world of Leather-work. Using traditional skills and techniques you will create your own unique item taking it from raw material to finished piece.

Tuition is delivered by Master Saddler and Leather Artisan Karen Ellis at her workshop in rural Aberdeenshire.

Workshops are run in small groups of around four, which allows for lots of individual attention, while providing a chance for shared inspiration and encouragement and a great creative vibe!

Suitable for beginners who would like an insight into the world of leather-working and the more experienced crafter who is keen to try a new skill.

In our half day together you will:

-Work with traditional veg tanned or bridle leather;
-Gain a basic understanding of and practice using various leather-working tools such as knives, punches and edgers;
-Learn various point finishes, such as bridle, egg and round.
-Learn traditional saddle stitching with two needles including adding a keeper.

Leave with your own traditionally crafted belt or dog collar that will give years of use and pleasure.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Includes all materials, tea, coffee and biscuits.

I went to a half day course recently and decided to make a dog collar. I have no experience at all with leather work but I felt I really achieved something and went home with something I could be proud of! Small group and friendly atmosphere where you can learn a new and interesting skill.
