Make a beautiful leather satchel from fine Italian leather

We have created a pattern for an old-school satchel that enables you to both learn lots of techniques and make something substantial size-wise that will be useful everyday! Come to Dartington, Devon, the home of craft.

What we’ll teach in the 1-day course:

How to mark out leather from a pattern, cut the leather and make holes for buckles, straps and attachments
How to make your own lace and assemble your satchel using a lacing technique.

Want to review this course?

A brilliant day the whole family made a satchel to be proud of, teaching was superb and atmosphere relaxed/ supportive. I'd highly recommend as a day out or for anyone wanting to try a new craft.
