Description

Come along and make a complete leather & canvas rucksack in one day! On the course you will firstly learn about different types of leather and how to select the right type for your bag. You will use a ready made pattern to create your rucksack but may adapt it slightly to your taste and needs. For example, you can make it with or without a front patch pocket. The design includes an inside zipped pocket for your valuables and adjustable straps for comfort. The rucksack also has long buckle straps to allow for more or less stuff to go inside depending on the length of your adventure! The rucksack measures 40cm wide and 50cm tall when fully open and 10cm deep at the base. Tools, equipment and materials are all provided with a range of colours of both leather and canvas to choose from, however, you are more than welcome to bring your own if you prefer. Subsequently, you may also emboss your initials onto the bag for that personal touch! Please contact me when booking to discuss your requirements. Workshop duration: 1 day, 10am-6pm with 45 mins for lunch

My designs are mainly influenced by geometric shapes and Art Deco design. I've built up a wide range of skills and now have the luxury of time and space to make my own products and to experiment with techniques and styles. Ultimately though, I love passing on my passion for leather craft to other people by running a series of workshops. I cater for both individuals with 1 to 1 tuition and groups at my Surrey studio or larger groups at other venues so email me if you'd like more information.
