A relaxing, interesting and challenging leather book-cover making experience day, including surface personalisation and patterning.
Ideal for someone looking for something different, you'll spend the day at the authentic workshop of master craftsman Johny Todd in Stafford, UK, making a leather book cover/slip using professional leather working tools and techniques. Beginners are very welcome and excellent tuition in an inspiring and imersive environment will provide a fun and productive course.
The price includes tuition, all materials, hot beverages galore and good cake! During the workshop you will choose your leather from a range of colours, then you will design, decorate, measure, cut, stitch and make the item.
At the end of the course you should have your very own unique book cover, but please be aware that competent leather working of this sort requires a level of skill only achieved through many hours of practice, so it may help to see the activity as a 'leather experience day', where in the short intense amount of time allocated, we'll do our best to assist you in realising your book cover design.
COVID 19: Sadly our "Make you own" workshop program has been effected by the Coronavirus pandemic since March 2020, but we hope to re-start hosting these very soon during the spring and summer 2021 - book now to get a space in our schedule when it restarts.
VALIDITY PERIOD: Voucher holders must book and redeem their place on the experience within 12 months of the order date - due to Covid-19 restrictions over the last year we have extended the valiity period of this.
Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 our workshop program has been severely curtailed due to both lockdown and social distancing measures. Therefore, given the ongoing nature of this health crisis, it is unlikely we will be able to host our full workshop program during the later half of 2020 and early 2021. We're monitoring the situation for the earliest likely date we are able to restart sessions properly and as such any workshop vouchers purchased during 2020, or with expiry dates during this pandemic, will be extended to help accommodate any missed or backdated sessions. Thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.
