Learn to make a statement hand stitched and punched leather satchel in this two-day course under the guidance of textile artist and designer Enda Kenny. You will work with vegetable tanned leather and learn how to cut leather by hand, hand dye the leather to your chosen colour, use leather punches to create stitching holes and saddle stitch the satchel using waxed thread. For a beautiful, refined finish, you will seal the leather to make your satchel waterproof and add straps for the perfect fit.
All materials included. Please wear old clothing or an apron to cover up, as we will be using leather dyes/pigments.
