Stamping, Embossing & Wet-Moulding Workshop Launch!

Evancliffe Leathercraft are launching our brand new Stamping, Embossing & Wet-Moulding Leather Workshop months ahead of our original plans!

Due to a number of enquiries about running this workshop earlier than our planned May 2018 start date we’ve added a much earlier start date this year!

Book Soon!

But… You’ll need to be quick to book!  We’ve decided to run it in place of an outside event that was cancelled, so from advertising the new date to it being here is not very long!

We originally planned launching this half day workshop in March next year (2018) and indeed, that was already advertised. However we’ve decided to give anyone wanting to do this an earlier opportunity, but it’s only this weekend.

1:30pm on Saturday 14th october 2017

The new workshop will run on Saturday 14th October starting at 1:30pm.

What You’ll Learn!

This half day course will introduce you to the principles of Stamping, Embossing, Wet-Moulding and Dying Leather through the making of your own hand dyed leather Keyring, Bookmark (or Hair Barrette) and Wet-Moulded Leather Bowl.

Hands On course during which you will learn how to stamp, emboss, wet-mould & dye veg tan leather to make three separate items.

The price includes tuition, materials & use of the tools.

Tea, Coffee and Biscuits will be provided.

Closed toe footwear should be worn. If you wish to protect your clothing (from dye etc.) please bring a suitable apron.

For more information email: welcome@evancliffeleather.co.uk

To book this workshop visit our Eventbrite Page or our Training Workshops page on our website.
