Mini Bucket Bag - Make a bag in a day

Make a Bag in a Day - Practical Leather Course. Taster to leather bag making

This course is ideal for all, from beginners to confident makers. You will learn the basics of leather craft for accessories and be introduced to techniques including machine stitching on leather, hand finishing and hand cutting. You will also be working with the full spectrum of leather types from soft leathers and suedes to a hard sturdy veg tanned leather. This is a perfect introductory course to start your journey into Leatherwork and bag making as you will experience the wide variety of tasks involved in the work. In order to complete your bag in a day we will use part pre-prepared components and the bag will be made from a 'Hands of Tym' pattern but do not fear there is still plenty of work for you to do.

During the day you will be directed by your tutor Leathersmith and London College of Fashion Lecturer Georgie Tym to make the 'turned seam' mini Leather bucket bag with raw edge strap.

The dimensions of the bag are 185mm x 190mm x 110mm and it will be the same construction as the bag in the photo above.
