Hand stitched leather workshop

Create a bespoke leather wallet or purse using a variety of colours, decorations and embossing at this workshop with expert Rosanna Gethin.

  • Booking essential

After choosing from a range of colourful leather pieces and different patterns, you will prepare the leather for cutting and learn the traditional art of leatherwork by saddle stitching, gluing and finishing the edges by burnishing. There is a choice of coloured threads for the stitching and two different fastenings for the closure. You may finish your wallet or purse by embossing your name or initials with a letter stamping set. Refreshments and all materials are provided.
