I am really pleased that Paul Dore of Paul Dore Leathercraft has agreed to run another of his fabulous introduction to leatherworking courses.
This is suitable for those new to leatherwork and those who wish to learn tips from an expert.

We will look at

- The different types of leather and what they can be used for,
- How to make patterns for sheaths, bags etc.
- What tools you need and how they’re used,
- Applying dyes and finishes,
- Different types of fittings and how they’re used,
- Edge finishing,
- Tooling and stamping.
- Course starts 9.30
- Course finishes 4 pm each day
We will provide

Review from previous course
“I was one of the fortunate few to be on the first course. It is very much “an introduction”. It covers the basics of selecting leathers, making patterns/templates, cutting, stitching, dyeing, finishing,.
You do not come away with a finished item, but with a host of knowledge of techniques. I think it is much better than a “make a handbag in a weekend” type course.”
