Special: Mother’s Day Leather Workshop
- 22 March 2020 – Mother’s Day (UK)
- 10am – 2pm Sunday
- Book by: Four weeks before the course starts
Celebrate Mothering Sunday with a special ‘taster’ leather accessory class to make a beautiful, Italian leather key fob with chunky clam clasp and key ring OR an Italian leather card case; followed by a delicious lunch and glass of fizz.
You will start with a set of tools, materials and the pre-cut leather pieces. (Please note that we pre-cut the leather using press knives to give crisp, sharp edges for a great-looking, finished product). Then through demonstration, trial and guidance you will learn to:
- Cement the leather together
- Smooth the leather edges with sandpaper
- Decorate the edges with a creasing iron
- Mark and punch the stitch holes
- Set your work in a clam
- Use a thread and stitching needles to stitch your work together
- Polish and protect your finished piece with gum tragacanth
Then, to celebrate your achievements, you can relax with a glass of fizz and delicious lunch in our bespoke room.
All the materials needed for the course are provided and aprons are available for your use, but please wear trousers so that you can use the stitching clam comfortably.
As you make your booking, please choose either a card case or key fob; chocolate or orange leather; and, if you have chosen a key fob, brass or nickel hardware. We will be in touch about any special dietary requirements.
If you would like to book this class as a surprise gift please book online and then contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can send you a gift certificate to be opened in advance. If the lucky recipient would like to change what they are making they just need to email us to let us know their preference at least two weeks in advance.
We have a maximum of six guests in a class so there is plenty of one-to-one guidance and instruction.
There’s perhaps no greater feeling than the satisfaction of making something beautiful by hand. Our courses, classes and workshops make a genuinely unique gift…definitely different, memorable, rewarding and great fun. You can find our our gift cards here.
