About the Course

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.
