Our 1:1 workshops are in full swing at the moment, with 3 held in the last 2 weeks. All 3 of our students were complete beginners and wanted to learn a range of leather craft techniques and projects.
To kick things off we had Maxwell in for 2 days where we were learning to create small leather goods like wallets, keyrings and card holders. One day one, Maxwell learn how to hand stitch leather the traditional way before moving onto some leather projects later in the day and continuing into day 2.
Later that same week we have Sasha in for a 1 day 1:1 workshop to learn how to create dog collars and leads. In this session, we learnt the more modern way of hand stitching using a diamond chisel to help her make her own dog collar and lead.
The next week we had Jess in the workshop for a 3 day intensive 1:1 workshop where she wanted to learn how to create her own bridle. Jess worked really hard to go from no experience to finished bridle in 3 days!!
As you can see, our students had a great time in the workshop and learnt a lot of new skills. If you are interested in a new hobby, skill or career change then we have a number of different methods to teach you how to become a skilled leather crafter, you can follow our FREE video tutorials on our YouTube Channel or book onto a 1:1 workshop where we can tailor the day(s) to suit your requirements.
Ordering a bespoke dog collar or belt? Please read the measuring guide to ensure you order the correct size.
When measuring for your new dog collar, the best option is to measure the internal length of a current collar adjusted to how you like it fitted. To do this, remove the collar from your dog and do it up at the desired fitting, then with a flexible tape measure measure around the inside of the collar. This length will be where the middle hole will fit on your new collar.
We will use the measurements provided as the internal measurement and add 2 larger and 2 smaller holes for adjustment.
The best way is to measure your current belt from the inside of the buckle to the hole that is used most. You can also use a tape measure and measure around your waist where your belt will sit.
We will add 3 larger and 3 smaller holes for adjustment.
