3 Hour Belt Making Course £65



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

On this 3 hour course you will learn how to make a jeans belt from start to finish. You will learn traditional leather craft techniques cutting the leather, hand dying & finishing techniques, edge polishing & koting and assembling the belt attaching the buckle with rivets or hand stitching.

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.
