Bec from Hammered Leather Works will guide us through the process and teach us the leather work skills to make this awesome messenger bag.
The workshop covers hand stitching, strap cutting, using rivets, button closures, buckles, swivel clips and eyelets.
If you have your own leather work tools, bring them along.  If not, Bec has a class set of tools for the rest of the participants to share.
Note, this is a workshop for learning skills to add leather to your felt. It is not a felting workshop.
You will need to bring:
  • a piece of very firm felt approx 30cm wide and 90cm long*.  (Do not trim we are going to use the natural edges)
  • Sewing machine thread to match the colour of the felt made.
  • Sewing machine (if you have one). We won’t be doing a lot of machine stitching so can share machines.
* for the sample bag, we used a 270 gm carded wool batt, approx 60cmx180cm and felted it down to half size.
 All hardware, leather and hire tools are supplied and included in the workshop cost. All hardware is quality solid brass. You will have a choice of natural, brown or black leather.

**Please note that as the materials have to be ordered and purchased in advance, this workshop fee is non-refundable.

**Bookings close 26 March 2018 to allow time to order materials.
