No experience necessary. These traditional leather lacing & braiding techniques may look intricate and complicated, but they are not, also there’s many different lacing techniques.

In this hands-on workshop, Cherryl will show you her preferred techniques, you will complete 3-4 samples as shown in the photo.

The workshop will cover the popular Double Loop also known as the Cordovan braided edge which gives a nice finish to any project. Then we’ll ignite your imagination with decorative applique` braiding, this decorative flat braid is a versatile way to add a touch of flair to Belts, wrist cuffs, wallets etc. I will also cover how to apply the Double Cordovan technique as a single strand centre applique` braid.
