Leather crafting just like any other skill, requires not only practise but also the correct techniques upon which to properly build those skills.
This five-hour workshop will focus on the materials necessary to make a custom belt using the correct tools and how to use them. You will learn basic leathercrafting techniques on how to cut leather, measure and make a belt to fit, bevel, burnish, skive (reduce thickness) attach a buckle and keeper, set hardware and dress the leather edges, to a professional finish and go home with a belt that will last.
This is a great course for people who have wanted to try their hands at creating your own luxury leather goods but don’t know how to start or are looking to have a better foundation.
Along the way you will also gain some insight into working with leather, its structure and layers, find out the difference between full-grain and genuine leather.
A fun and practical workshop suitable for beginners, or anyone in need of a fancy new belt! Learn from a master of the craft Cherryl McIntyre, who has many years of experience.
Bring along an old belt to take a measurement or waist or hip measurement.
