Ahead of another great event during the London Craft Week (LCW) 2021, I have been preparing a couple of leather crafting projects for the introductory workshop. I am very excited to be a part of the LCW again and can't wait to meet those who are curious about leather craft.
There will be three items to choose from: leather purse, belt or Airpods case. If you ever wondered how to hand stitch leathers, this is the perfect chance to experience full process.
The workshops will be held on a private session based. And I invite a maximum of two attendees per session in my studio during 4-9th October.
You can read more event details on Craft Central who will be hosting our public events this year. (I am including the event details in this page too.) Don't forget to browse through other events!
Send me an email if you want to book. See you then!
Leather Craft Workshop with Herin Hong
Learn to hand-make leather items (Airpods case, purse/clutch & belt) and personalise the creation during a 3-hours private session. You will select and hand-stitch premium Italian leathers, the same we use to craft our products. You will learn artisanal tools and methods in our London studio. After the workshop, you will take away a unique leather product and essential (but professional) leathercrafting techniques which you can apply for your future pojects.
What to learn:
After a brief introduction on materials and health and safety measures, you’ll select the leather you like to use as well as the thread colour used to stitch it. You will learn how to work with professional patterns, use them to cut leathers by hand, use pricking irons to create stitching holes, hand-stitching leathers, hand-burnishing leather edges and finalising it with brass fixtures (if applicable). At the end, we’ll personalise your product by stamping your name on it. A dust bag will be available for your new creations too. It would be a perfect chance to make a present for someone you care or just yourself. If you are curious about leathercraft, this is a good opportunity to learn professional skills. We will be providing the leather and crafting tools for your session.
