Choose from 2 styles of backpack (one with a drawstring closure and the other with a zip opening) and learn how to craft your own backpack using a semi industrial sewing machine. You will be able to mix and match leather colours and tweak the designs to make the bags more your own as well as embossing the bag with your name or any other words you like. Your bag will be unlined and will be made from Italian vegetable tanned leather.  

You will learn how to:

  • cut leather from a pattern

  • skive and glue the leather ready for sewing

  • set rivets and buckles

  • sew in zips and pockets

  • use a semi-industrial sewing machine


This workshop runs alongside the Make a Leather Bag in a Day workshop but is an hour longer.
