Introduction to Leatherwork

10 October 2020

A great introduction to Leathercraft. Come and make a leather coin purse, wallet and key ring using vegetable tanned leather.

Come and make a leather coin purse, wallet and key ring using vegetable tanned leather. You will be shown how to use specialist leather making tools safely and will sew your leather goods by hand.

Course Tutor: Deborette Clarke

Deborette Clarke is a fun loving creative who has many years’ experience as an educator, designer and maker. Having worked with leather whilst studying at college and really admiring the versatility of the material, it was a natural choice of material to work with. ‘I wanted to experiment with leather and a pre-owned leather sewing machine’. B18 Leather was born, shapes are simple and colour is key.  Some pieces are hand painted using a variety of methods. The skin or hide is treated as a blank ‘canvas’ for the experimentation.
