Come join this unique leather workshop taught by award-winning leather artisan Dave Mangino.
What can you create in our leatherwork workshop?
Dave uses a unique combination of knotting and braiding techniques to create the fastenings for his products.
He’ll share with you how to craft a metal-free leather lead using knotted fastenings — one that will last a lifetime. Being made entirely of leather, the product will also achieve a high degree of suppleness, in effect moulding itself and ensuring maximum comfort.
If you are making a sheath, then that knife will be well protected in a handcrafted leather holder that you can proudly say ‘Made it myself’
Enjoy our lovely picturesque location and meet other interesting folk who are likewise motivated to create a customised leather piece.
All leather materials will be provided.
Participants will need to bring the following tools: stanley knife, scalpel, small pliers, ruler, dividers or compass.
This workshop will be held in our meeting room, so it is indoors, comfortable with a pleasant outlook.
Apparel required: comfortable casual clothing, jeans etc and covered footwear (i.e. no jandals). Please note: often we are dyeing different colours in our leatherwork workshops.
Leather aprons will be available for use if desired.
