This brand new Leather Satchel Course will teach you how to prepare, make and hand stitch a vegetable tanned, leather satchel in just two days! Similar in style to the traditional school satchel you’ll make a lightweight leather bag which is designed to carry your tablet as well as other essentials.
You will be working from a choice of pre-prepared patterns including a rucksack and while you are here, you will learn how to cut leather, prepare, assemble and hand stitch together your satchel with traditional, waxed linen thread. You will also cut and fit billets, adjustable straps, an exterior pocket and learn how to create beautifully finished cut-edged seams.
With the support of two professional tutors, a small group of just six students and all the encouragement you’ll need, you will not only leave the course with your two-tone leather satchel fully completed, you will also leave with an enormous sense of achievement!
What's included in the price?
There are no hidden extras! All leather and attachments required to make your leather satchel are included in the course fee. Two full days of professional leatherwork tuition with course notes and plenty of help and advice in sourcing leather and materials for you to continue leatherwork at home. A spacious work area is allocated to each student along with their own set of tools to use while they’re here. A plentiful supply of tea, coffee and afternoon cakes are provided too, so all you’ll need to bring along is yourself and a packed lunch.
To ensure that everyone gets individual attention we have two tutors providing tuition to small groups of 6 only. Please contact us for suitability and more information.
