Have you ever wanted to try your hand at leather work? 

 On this one-day course you will learn how to make a belt from start to finish. You will learn traditional leather craft techniques from carving and embossing leather, dying leather, polishing edges, riveting buckles and sewing on an industrial sewing machine.

You can transfer these techniques to make dog collars as well as belts.

What to bring

We provide the leather & rivets but please bring with you buckles and any metal component for decoration.  

When buying buckles they will refer to the size of leather belt width that you will use. For example most commonly used is around a 3.5cm buckle for a jeans belt. You will find different colour metals so please pick matching metal finishes for all components.
