Leather Crafting for Beginners
During this introductory workshop you will use a range of leather crafting techniques and tools.
You will start by making a simply coin purse from pre-loved leather which will introduce to the techniques that you will use for your beautiful sunglasses case.
You will then select your case leather from a selection of real leathers.
You will then go through the stages of pattern cutting, polishing, leather cementing, hammering, stitching and hole punching your sunglasses case.
You will also have the opportunity to stamp letters or shapes into the design to personalise your design.
(NOTE - if you would like to store a specific pair of glasses/sunglasses please bring them along so you can use the correct pattern).
All materials will be provided.
