3 hour workshop
Leather craft focuses the mind, develops dexterity and creativity. During this 2 hour workshop you will craft using all the tools necessary to make a leather belt.
You will get to:
- Choose your own leather, buckle and thread colour
- Use a template to mark and cut the leather
- Learn how to master the two-needled saddle stitching technique
- Personalise with initials (make a unique gift for someone special?)
About the Tutor:
Rye Hide London was established by Designer Maker Garry Meehan. The name reflects the area of Peckham Rye, south London, where his workshop is based. Garry uses simple and traditional leather-working methods to make individually handcrafted goods, from handbags to card holders, glasses cases to change purses, which are as unique as they are functional.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, Stag and Bow
Stag and Bow was set up in 2010 by founders Pascale and Cyrus, as a celebration of sharing skills, stories, knowledge, and all things handmade. As well as running a stunning shop in Forrest Hill, Stag and Bow also provide informative, fun and inspiring craft and textile workshops.
Cyrus is a specialist woodworker and designer with great experience in a variety of design disciplines, with strong focus on the "poetic" side of materials and how people can relate to them. Similarly, Pascale is in her element when she is making, fully immersing herself in the textile world.
