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!

This workshop is one in a selection of mid-week workshops running as part of the 2020/21 course program focussing on some of the most useful advanced wilderness living, self-reliance and traditional crafts – lighting fire by friction, woodworking and leather working. All the workshops are designed to send you home not just with a new skill but also an extremely useful piece of equipment or kit, handmade entirely by you!

Places will be limited to five or six depending on the subject, giving these small workshops more exclusivity than many of the busier courses.  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.

They can also be booked as private workshops so if the advertised date doesn’t suit you, get in touch to choose your own. Many other crafts, wilderness living and survival skills can also be covered during a private course.
