We are so excited to be bringing our fun and popular leathercraft workshops to GMBB Mall, which is the first commercial mall that is fully branded around artisanal, creative retailers. We are thankful to be a part of a space where creatives can come together in relentless creativity.
This 2019, why not learn a new craft? Did you know that leather crafting is an ancient skill that has survived the many centuries? In our workshops we teach a mixture of traditional and modern techniques that can produce beautiful handmade goods. Lastly, add personalisation such as your name with the use of our hot foil stamp machine! No experience in leathercraft is needed, just bring yourself and plenty of enthusiasm! All materials will be provided in this workshop.
This 2-hour leathercraft workshop will guide you on crafting TWO leathergoods!
Genuine brown leather will provided
Pattern-making, where you'll be able to create patterns for other notebook sizes
Learning the various leathercrafting tools
Techniques on making clean cuts on leather
Hammering holes to thread elastic bands on the spine of the leather cover

Burnishing the edges of your leathers to seal the edges, as well as give it a smooth finish
