This 4 hour workshop is fun, informal and friendly and suitable for complete beginners. You will make and finish one long stitch leather journal using upcycled leather and then start on a second journal, which you can finish at home. No previous leather work experience is required.
You will start by making an A5 book - 'signatures' - from loose paper. Following this, you will learn how to:
Make a template and use an awl
Cut your leather
Make holes in the leather
Learn the long stitch sewing technique
The workshop starts at 10am and finishes at 2pm.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

The workshop will be in Catterick Garrison or Richmond, North Yorkshire and the venue will be confirmed on booking.
