handpainted small leathergoods
In this workshop you will be able to craft your own small leathergoods piece (choose from a glasses case, a triangular coin pouch, a half moon purse and a card holder) from vegetable tanned leather and hand paint your piece with own your design. First you will cut the leather following a pattern, then you will hand paint it with specialist leather paint (you can come prepared with a few ideas of designs/shapes/flowers other motifs you'd like to paint). The piece will then be hand-stamped with your initials to personalise it and rivets and metal fittings secured. You will then hand sew your piece to complete it.
