Come and try your hand at a new skill! This is a great starter class for someone who's curious about trying leatherwork. Or take this as an opportunity to improve on your basic leatherworking skills by joining us for our card wallet workshop.


In this evening workshop we'll each make a card wallet from natural veg tan leather and leather offcuts from the Westerly studio. There will be plenty of colour and weight options of leather so you can choose what suits you best.


Then learn to cut, punch, and handstitch using a range of hand tools and our pattern for a card wallet, perfect for streamlining your bulky every day wallet for a night out, or for holding your business cards. Once built, you'll also learn leather edge-finishing techniques to give your wallet a professionally finished look. And of course you get to take the wallet home for your use and enjoyment.


This is our first evening class. We'll get started at 6 o'clock and I expect the class will run two to three hours.
