What you'll do

I'll start by guiding you through the basic skills of measuring, cutting, edging, creasing and stitching leather whilst teaching you something of the rich history of english tanning and saddlery. You'll then bring these elements together to make a small practice piece that will allow you to test your new found skills and all the while I'll keep you supplied with drinks and snacks. The second half of your time will be dedicated to making your own piece where you can choose the belt size, leather colour and buckle type such that you'll end up with a truly unique and lasting souvenir of the day that you, or a special friend or relative will cherish for years to come.

More tips

There is no need for any prior experience but the stitching does require reasonable dexterity and strength so I would suggest this is experience is for older teenagers and adults only.
