Card Case + Key Fob Class
Contact us to arrange a date
The class is for a minimum of 2 and up to 4 people and is approx. 3 hours long
In this small-group class you will make a beautiful, Italian leather card case – perfectly sized for travel, business or bank cards – and a beautiful leather strapped key fob with a chunky clam clasp and key ring.
This is a great introductory course to stitching leather with great results at the end!
Starting with a set of tools and the pre-cut leather pieces (we use press knives for crisp, sharp edges and a great-looking, finished product) we will show you how to:
Heat crease the edges
Cement the layers of the card case together / attach the hardware to the key fob
Finish the edges with fine sandpaper and gum tragacanth
Punch the stitch holes
Set your work in a clam
Stitch using pre-waxed thread and a pair of needles
There’s no greater feeling than the satisfaction of making something yourself. Why not try a class yourself or share the experience with a friend and give it as a present using one of our beautiful gift cards.
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 pony comfortably.
To work with the best materials and create products that last:
Tactile, durable and supple veg. tanned leather from Tuscany and oak bark leather from England. Veg. tanned leather is a natural, organical material; the tone and depth of colour of the leather varies and changes with use and age, developing a beautiful patina over time. (Leather is a waste material and by-product that would otherwise go to landfill or be incinerated).
Natural 100% felted wool for its durability and softness
Solid brass / nickel hardware from Italy and England
