Leather book cover with Tony Morgan

Red book with closure flap and initials stamped
X

Description

Learn to make a leather cover for your favourite writing or sketch book.

You'll learn the following skills:

Leather selection.
Accurate measuring, marking and cutting.
Dying, oiling and waxing.
Leather thinning.
Hand sewing - the Saddle Stitch.
Finishing edges.

The skills learnt on this course will allow you to go ahead and make many other leather items.

The course will run for a day at my house in Carnforth, from 9:30 until 4:00 (or until everyone's finished!).

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Lunch (soup, cheese and bread), biscuits, tea and coffee, and hopefully a good chatter and laugh!

Leather and hardware are included to make a simple cover made from standard cowhide, up to A5 size.

If you'd like to make a cover for a larger book then we can work out the extra cost on the day, but to give you an idea, an A4 book cover would cost an extra £10 for the extra leather.

There'll also be a slight extra charge if you'd like to use more expensive leather (such as the oak bark tanned leather) or if you want closure straps and pen holders added to your design (£10 - £30 extra).

Bring your own favourite book to cover (please let me know dimensions) or you can purchase an A5 or A6 book from me (£6 extra).
