Leather dog collar making workshop
Come and join me in my workshop to make a leather dog collar entirely by hand. Learn the traditional art of saddle stitch. The workshops are 1-1 or I have space for two people to work comfortably if you prefer to bring a friend. We will work entirely at your pace and you will leave with a collar to be proud of. Please measure your dogs neck prior to the course so that we can make the collar to fit perfectly.I don’t have set days or times for these workshops so they can be bought as a gift and I can arrange the details with the recipient.
I use vegetable tanned leather and you will have the option for choosing a colour before you arrive. As the course involves hand stitching please be prepared and bring glasses if you need them. The workshop is in a shepherds hut and there are two steps to get in and out of it.
The perfect Christmas gift experience for the pet owning friend or family member who is difficult to buy for.
What to expect
The course will run for approximately two hours. To begin we will look at the tools needed to make a collar and you will then get a chance to use them on scrap leather before starting on your collar. Next we will go through the construction of the collar, before starting and creating your own masterpiece. When you are happy with your collar we will give it a coat of leather balm for protection. Then you are ready to take it home and try it on your dog.
