Leather work skills – small gifts

leather workshop

Have you ever fancied working with leather? It’s quite different to sewing with fabric. We all know that leather can be sewn but how about constructing using rivets? We’re being joined by leather  expert Rebecca Jane. Rebecca will show you how to make some small leather items. Everything is hand stitched or riveted together, so no need for sewing machines.

This is a fun workshop where you can make a selection of items.

The items that you can choose from are quite varied and all will make great gifts so come along and have a go. Rebecca will take you through everything you need to know and not only will you take home you’re finished items but then you will be able to make more at home.

You will have a choice of what to make on the day from a crossbody phone case bag, glasses case, zipped purse, card holder and key ring.

Why not make them as gifts for your friends and family?
