This is a four day immersive course for those seeking to make a professional leather satchel / messenger bag.
On my courses I like to cover as much as the craft as possible from leatherwork history, how to make templates and patterns, to cutting, carving, dyeing, hand stitching, lacing, braiding, and offer a comprehensive list of tools and where to get them at the best price. I like my students to come away from a course with not only a nice finished product, but the means to comfortably continue leatherwork on their own with a solid foundation of skills and knowledge.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All materials and tools are provided for the course, and you keep whatever you make.
I am not able to offer accommodation, though there are plenty of B&Bs and hotels within a 15 minute drive, or camping available on site.
4 days (flexible times to suit)
