Event Details

Leather Saddle Bag Making Course

Leather Saddle Bag Making Course making course in Leominster.

This course is suitable for beginners but it is also a great follow up for students who have already attended one of our shorter courses.

The course will begin with students learning the basic leather skills (or refreshing your memory of them) by firstly learning and practicing how to hand stitch leather. You will learn marking out, choosing appropriate leather, hand saddle stitching and raw edge finishing.

Following this everyone will make one small unlined saddle bag each. You will work from a prepared pattern so everyone’s bags will be the same size and shape, however you can choose from our leather to have your own bespoke colour combinations and make small alterations such as changing the strap, stitch colour, etc. so your finished bag will be unique to you.

Please note we try to keep a good range of different colour leathers for your choice but we can not guarantee we will have every colour in stock. You are welcome to bring your own leather with you. Please let me know if you have any questions.

All leather and materials
