Based at our ancient woodland camp in Kent, we’ve put this leather working day together for anyone with an interest in craft, the outdoors, or who simply wants to explore another avenue of bushcraft. So if you’re looking for an unforgettable day, join our experienced craftsman, Paul Bradley, in a leather working day that focuses on leather work tools, design and construction.
Typically, you will, under guidance and instruction:
Learn all about the different tools used in leather working and how to use them,
How to design and draw out your items,
Then how to cut out and assemble them.
This is an opportunity to produce simple items such as sheaths and ‘possibles’ pouches and take these away with you when you leave. So if you have a knife, multitool, axe or even a torch or mobile phone you’d like to make a leather sheath for, bring it with you! Otherwise we’ll have plenty of help and advice to help you chose what to make.
All tools, equipment and materials are provided but please note, there’ll be a small charge for the leather that you use.
A really great chance to begin a lifetime of making beautiful things!
