Description

In this workshop you’ll get to learn the processes involved in moulding shaped leather, from preparing the leather, different tool use and creating 3D form.

Leatherwork is a fascinating craft; gentle, tactile and hugely absorbing.

Using high quality vegetable tanned leather we will use the process of wet-moulding to create a simple and beautiful pouch that can be used as a small handbag or belt attachment; perfect for carrying your essentials.

We will select, cut, mould, trim, punch and stitch our leather all using traditional skills, tools and techniques passed down through generations. 

At the end of the course you will be equipped with a list of basic tools and contacts in order for you to carry on with this wonderful craft.
