Leather work is immensely rewarding and once you know how, very straightforward – like most things it just requires a little practise to become really good at it. On this relaxed evening class you will make either a beautiful, Italian leather card case – perfectly sized for travel, business or bank cards – or a beautiful leather strapped key fob with a chunky clam clasp and keyring.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This is a great introductory course to stitching leather with great results at the end!

Starting with a set of tools and the pre-cut leather pieces (we use press knives for crisp, sharp edges and a great-looking, finished product) we will show you how to:

  • Heat crease the edges
  • Cement the layers of the card case together / attach the hardware to the key fob
  • Finish the edges with fine sandpaper and gum tragacanth
  • Punch the stitch holes
  • Set your work in a clam
  • Stitch using pre-waxed thread and a pair of needles

There’s no greater feeling than the satisfaction of making something yourself or you could share the experience with a gift card.

MATERIALS

All the materials are provided and aprons are available for your use, but please wear trousers so that you can use the stitching clam comfortably.
