Perthshire: Traditional Leathercraft Workshops, Dumfries

Bespoke Leathercraft workshops arranged by booking, for one-to-one mentoring or a group of two or three persons. This is ideal for those who have a specific project in mind or just want to learn the basics. This can be from a starter day making a belt, phone case, or knife sheath, to a three day more immersive course making a sporran, shoulder bag, or fitting several smaller projects together. Longer courses may also be required to work on more detailed and advanced projects, subject to discussion.

Workshops will cover as much as the craft as possible from how to select leathers, to cutting, carving, dyeing, hand stitching, lacing, braiding, and offer a comprehensive list of tools and where to get them at the best price. Workshop pupils will come away from a course with not only a nice finished product, but the means to confidently continue leatherwork on their own with a solid foundation of skills and knowledge.
