Leather Bag Workshop

Leather Bag Workshop

Learn how to make a simple and rustic leather haversack or duffle bag during this one day workshop. These hardy kit carriers are perfect for holding all your essential items and slinging over a shoulder for a walk or day out in the woods. I always pack one in my kit as an alternative to carrying a larger rucksack when away from the fixed base camp.

Tough and flexible grain on leather is provided (please state a colour preference) as well as patterns and any tools you’ll need to get the job done. Leather thonging is used for stitching. Quickly done and extremely effective it’ll give your bag a touch of primitive chic.

If you’ve made buckskin during a previous workshop but haven’t yet decided what to make from it, bring it along! Free counselling and encouragement is available for anyone too nervous to cut into their precious first tanned hide.

All tools, materials and hot drinks are provided however, please bring your own lunch and snacks.  Arrival 9am each morning and we'll finish around 5pm.

This workshop can be booked as a private training day, get in touch to choose your own date.  Many other crafts, wilderness living and survival skills can also be covered during a private course.

This workshop has been combined with the Willow Pack Basket Workshop for 2021.  Both can still be booked as standalone workshops but they do go very well together!
