The leather weekend workshop is the crash course in our series of workshops. During these weekends, you will learn the basics of leather processing while crafting your own leather clutch, small handbag or other little accessory. The focus of this course is to gain an overview of different techniques in leather manufacturing so that participants can manufacture their own products in the future. We are also happy to discuss problems you have experienced while working with leather in the past. Just bring up your questions during the workshop.
At the end of the course, each participant will receive a small folder containing everything that was discussed during the course.
No prior knowledge in working with leather is required for this workshop, but a little experience in manufacturing products can be helpful.
We provide the tools, but it would be helpful if you can also bring your own: metal ruler, good utility knife (ideally a roll knife), hammer, hole puncher, cutting board, pencil, paper, scissors,
