Make a Stitchless Leather Bag in a Day Workshop

BUILD YOURSELF A BEAUTIFUL NEW LEATHER BAG 

Join me on in my Bristol studio for a day of making and craft yourself your own leather bag in beautiful Italian cow leather.  You will weave the leather together and fix rivets in strategic points to construct your bag.  No machine or hand sewing involved!

This is a fun yet challenging day of learning new skills.  There is a maximum of 4 people in this workshop giving you plenty of opportunity for one to one attention and learning.  

You can choose from the following -

  • loads of natural coloured vegetable tanned leather in muted tones
  • 2 styles of bags (bucket bag or saddle bag) 

 

This workshop requires a degree of strength in the hands and may not be suitable for people with reduced mobility or strength in their hands (weaving the leather and fixing rivets is hard work!)
