Course description

The course is taught by leather craftsman Frankey Pinnock, formerly of Bill Amberg Studio and specialist bag maker at Simpsons. 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:

  • Prepare and finish the leather edges
  • Cement the layers of leather together
  • Punch the stitch holes and to set your work in a clam
  • Use an awl, thread and stitching needles
  • Saddle stitch and to finish your work

There’s no greater feeling than the satisfaction of making something yourself. We hope that this practical course, and the comprehensive notes supplied in class, will encourage you to continue saddle stitching in the future.

Our courses also make a great gift and can be purchased using our 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 clam comfortably.
