Join award-winning Milliner, costume fabricator and textile artist Enda Kenny for this two-day leather course where you will make two different leather products. Turn a piece of raw leather into a beautiful and unique hand tooled and dyed belt and make a hand stitched mini satchel for a secure and beautifully crafted compact bag. This workshop with demonstrations will teach you how to handle and cut tooling leather, add designs and decoration to the leathers surface, hand dye leather and how to care for leather. You will learn to punch and stitch leather as well as attaching those all-important buckles and fittings.

All materials and tools will be supplied. Please bring an overall, apron or old shirt to protect clothing from leather dyes and pigments.
