Make your own Leather Apron for the BBQ, Crafting, Utility, Workshop
In a relaxed and friendly setting enjoy a full day of fun, practical and informative learning making your own leather apron. Made from sturdy durable vegetable tanned leather, with adjustable neck, back and waist straps this utility apron is great for the BBQ, crafting and all sorts of possibilities. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as all abilities. Surrounded by the smell of leather, in Coterie's purpose built, light and airy leather studio, with absolutely no experience necessary, in a small group of 4 students you'll learn the basics of leatherwork, all about the materials and tools, cutting and preparing natural vegetable tanned leather, and traditional hand stitching techniques, as well as strap cutting and fixing hardware. You'll have the opportunity to design pockets and personalise your apron, perhaps your name or initials, and you'll go home with a beautiful unique handmade item. Covid Update - The studio is light and airy with good natural ventilation, and the leather working bench is large enough to fit 4 students comfortably within the social distancing guidelines. Each student will have their own set of tools which will be sanitised before and after every workshop and further sanitising measures will be taken throughout. Handwashing and sanitiser facilities on entry. I want to make sure everyone feels comfortable with our Covid procedures, so if you have any queries please ask.
