A basic leatherwork starter day for making a small project such as a belt, arm bracer, or phone case. I run private one day starter courses/workshops from my workshop on a farm near Perth, for one-to-one mentoring or a group of up to six persons. This is ideal for those who have a specific project in mind or just want to learn the basics. 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.
What's included in the price?
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.
