About the Course
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 home near Dumfries, for one-to-one mentoring or a group of two 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.
Courses run from my own workshop on a one-to-one basis:
