Leatherwork Courses 2018 - They Are Finally Here

June 12, 2018

As mentioned in our January post we are now exited to announce our first course!

To start with we have scheduled our first introduction to leatherwork course. This course is running on the 21st -23rd August and will have a maximum of 4 students. You will learn the basics of leatherwork including tool sharpening, hide selection, hand stitching, loop making and you will complete your own belt or dog collar project. 

If there is demand for the course we are looking to put on another in September, so if you miss out on this one please email us and we will add you to the mailing list so you are kept up to date. 

As we get into the colder months more courses will be put together and scheduled for the spring and summer months of 2019.

Measuring Guide

Ordering a bespoke dog collar or belt? Please read the measuring guide to ensure you order the correct size.

Dog Collars

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.

How to measure your dog collar
You can also measure around your dogs neck. Place the tape measure around your dogs neck where the collar will sit and to a tightness that you like.

We will use the measurements provided as the internal measurement and add 2 larger and 2 smaller holes for adjustment. 

Belts

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.
