1-1 Headcollar making workshop - 4 days

On this 4 day headcollar making workshop you will learn how to create a stable headcollar complete with rolled throat and padded nose and head pieces. The course will cover leather selection, measuring, cutting, hand stitching, padding and finishing touches to make your leatherwork stand out from the rest.

This is a more advanced course and we recommend that you know how to handstitch leather and have completed a few projects before booking this course. We can recommend the 2 day 1-1 course, if you are new to saddlery and Leathercraft.

Headcollars can be made in pony, cob or full sizes.

Once you have brought your course we will arrange your training day(s) on a date to suit you. We will also go over what colour and size of headcollar you would like to make on your workshop with us.

Course materials are included in the price, if you would like to purchase some more leather at the end course this can be arranged.

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. 


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.
