Rucksack in a day workshop

Khaki green canvas & black leather rucksack
X

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-5pm with 45 mins for lunch

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

The whole day was just wonderful. Right from the start, when you arrive at the lovely creative studio in such peaceful surroundings, you then choose the colour of the leather and then the colour of the canvas and then of course the colour of the lining. Choices, choices, choices! I have done a previous course with Rosanna so I knew just how organised and what a great teacher she was. The patterns were all ready for us to cut out and she explained everything we had to do in great detail and helped us when we got to a tricky bit! I wanted to learn how to sew leather and how to construct a bag and that is exactly what happened and I had a great time doing it. I returned home with my lovely rucksack and everyone said how talented I was. Rosanna is the talented one but just a tiny bit of that has rubbed off on me! If you are thinking about doing a course with Rosanna, just sign up, you won't regret it.

Response from Rosanna Clare:

This was my third workshop with Rosanna, this time my fiancé joined us to make 'his & hers' rucksacks! We love the fact we’ve made something unique & learnt skills for future use.
We thoroughly enjoyed the day, choosing the canvas, leather & the templates definitely made things easier.
Rosanna is a great teacher and was always on hand, especially with some of the tricky sewing, which the sewing machines handled with ease.
If you like crafting, the opportunity to learn from a great teacher, to use great materials & take away something unique then book yourself on this course, you won’t be disappointed!

Response from Rosanna Clare:

Thanks for a lovely review Kellie - so glad you enjoyed it 😉

My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our rucksack making day.
Rosanna guided us carefully and patiently through every step of the process.

It was great to work through the process and very satisfying by mid afternoon to see the rucksack taking shapes as stitched leather and canvas together and affixed the rivets. Very proud and totally pleased with the finished product.
