Leathercraft Workshop

1-2-1 Leathercraft Workshop

from 280.00

Sign up for a 1-2-1 leather workshop, specialising in traditional leatherwork of hand stitching with master craftswoman, Candice Lau. Each workshop is tailored to what the individual wishes to learn and make. Therefore, a customised curriculum will be uniquely designed for each participant. This course is ideal for someone wishing to learn the process of leatherwork from design to making, and for those wishing to take away a set of skills to continue on with leatherwork in your own studio.

The workshop will always start with the basics which includes:

  • understanding leather

  • learning the use of the essential tools

  • saddle stitching

  • edge finishing

  • pattern making

From here on, you will design, pattern make and craft your own product with the guidance from Candice to be completed over the duration of the course. Here, we will discuss and apply different methods of construction such as:

  • t-base

  • box bag

  • bucket bag

  • pipped handles

  • adjustable straps

  • and many more…

You can then apply this to make a series of small items, a handbag, tote, satchel, backpack or weekender.

All materials and use of tools are included in the price. A detailed workbook will be provided with the list of tools necessary to start your own leather studio, the types of leather suitable for hand stitching work, a list of merchants in and around the London area. Do bring along a notebook if you wish to take notes.
