Make a leather book cover with Tony Morgan

Red book with closure flap and initials stamped
X

Description

Learn to make a leather cover for your favourite writing or sketch book.

You'll learn the following skills:

Leather selection.
Accurate measuring, marking and cutting.
Dying, oiling and waxing.
Leather thinning.
Hand sewing - the Saddle Stitch.
Finishing edges.

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!).

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

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).
