Calfskin Cross Body Bag Making Workshop

Saturday 13 April 2019 to Sunday 23 June 2019

Make your very own versatile small crossbody bag from a selection of premium grade Italian leathers.

You'll get expert guidance and throughout your workshop you'll be cutting your leather, marking out and chisel punching out all your stitching holes, setting hardware, waxing threads, making your shoulder strap, burnishing edges and finally bringing it all together by hand stitching using a traditional leather Saddle Stitch, a thread with a needle at each end.

A bag this size will easily fit an A4 folio. You can of course make your crossbody bag smaller or larger if preferred, if you wish to create a larger mail bag, a supplemental charge for the leather is available.
