What you'll do

Join me in my artist's studio space in the heart of Melbourne's creative precinct to learn all the fundamental techniques of hand-sewn leather craft with this fun, practical and hands-on lesson. You will learn to wet form leather, sew leather by hand, finish leather, create your own hand sewing thread from raw linen, and to read, interpret and use patterns. These miniature boots are made using techniques based on real shoemaking. You will also be able to take home your pattern to create them again. Once your boots are completed you can turn them into a key ring, necklace or earrings. Classes are small so you will get lots of individual attention. Perfect for the artistically inclined. Classes are suitable for all skill levels from complete beginners to experienced leather crafters and anyone over 16 years of age. Join a class today.
