Learn how to make allowance’s when purchasing premade leather liners

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.


At East Coast Leather we provide an ongoing series of hands-on workshops that covers many different projects.

Learn from a master of the craft Cherryl McIntyre, who has many years of experience, and presents numerous hands-on workshops to further your knowledge.

Leather crafting, just like any other skill, requires not only practice but also the correct techniques upon which to build skills.

In this workshop, get familiar with different hand-tools and techniques while working with different pre embossed & textured fine leathers.

The workshop will cover essential leathercraft components such as how to measure and make the correct allowance for different thickness outer leathers when purchasing pre-made wallet linings.

  • How skive to reduce thickness
  • Edge bevelling
  • stitching, lacing
  • Burnishing
  • Dressing edges for that perfect finish

You will make a wallet in this workshop and have the knowledge to continue these skills creating your personalised leather projects at home.

  • I will demonstrate how to assemble other different pre-cut leather liners for lacing or stitching.
  • All tools and equipment supplied to use during the workshop
  • If time permits, I will demonstrate how to prepare and skive your leather for turned edges for pre-made liners, this will give you a professional finish on your projects.

Please note: this workshop is more expensive than others I have presented due to the cost of the wallet liners I prefer to use lightweight high-quality liners for the professional finish.
