Learn to make a leather cover for your favourite writing or sketch book.
You'll learn the following skills:
Accurate measuring, marking and cutting.
Dying, oiling and waxing.
Hand sewing - the Saddle Stitch.
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!).
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
Lunch (soup, cheese and bread), biscuits, tea and coffee, and hopefully a good chatter and laugh!
Leather and hardware are included for a simple cover made from standard cowhide.
NB There'll be a slight extra charge if you'd like to use more expensive 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).
1 day (9:30am to 4:00pm)
