Woohoo! We are coming to Kuching and can you tell that we're super duper excited? Our popular Leather Traveler's Notebook Workshop is perfect for anyone who loves writing, doodling, sketching, and journaling, just to name a few. We use high quality, genuine cow leather in our leathercraft workshops. No experience in sewing or leathercraft is needed, just bring yourself! You will be taught by leathercrafter and our very own Sarawakian Co-Founder, Saran.
This 3-hour workshop will guide you on crafting your own luxurious Passport-Sized Leather Traveler's Notebook with a handstitched (woah!) inner pocket:
Pattern-making, where you'll be able to create patterns for other leather cover sizes
Decide on your inner pocket design. Scallop edge, straight edge, etc.
Techniques on making clean cuts on leather
Hammering holes to thread elastic bands on the spine of the leather cover
Fixing a pen holder for your leather cover
Burnishing the edges of your leather cover to give a smooth finish
Learn how to use a prickling iron to create holes in the leather for handstitching.
Learn the traditional saddle-stitch method to hand-stitch leather. This might be the hardest part, but trust us, you are going to appreciate your finished leathergood!
Personalisation on how to stamp onto leather. You may choose to stamp your name or your favourite inspirational quote.
Add a little Borneo love, with Sarawak's Lun Bawang handcrafted beads on the spine of your Leather Traveler's Notebook.
You will bring home:
Your very own handcrafted and personalised Leather Traveler's Notebook cover with a handstitched inner pocket, yay!
One passport-sized blank page notebook
