This workshop is designed for those with no previous experience in leatherwork, as well as those looking to improve their techniques.

Leathercrafting just like any other skill, requires not only practise but also the correct techniques upon which to properly build those skills.


  • 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.

Be inspired to learn how to create well-crafted leather items that are much sought after today.

In this hands-on workshop, you will not only learn the art of hand sewing leather using two needles and thread, but also the fundamentals of working with natural full grain vegetable tanned leathers. 

You will be guided on what tools are required and the correct techniques of how to use these tools, how to prepare the leather and thread, mark stitches correctly, and how to finish edges by bevelling, burnishing and using new edge finishing products. At the end of the workshop, you will have completed a few projects.

A selection of kits will be provided for you to select from: Coin purse, Luggage Tag, Card Wallet, you will make at least two items.

The cost of the workshop includes your project, and the use of the tools and equipment, including locally crafted stitching clamps.
