Leathercraft: Traditional Handcrafted Leatherwork Skills
Leathercraft: Traditional Handcrafted Leatherwork Skills and Projects. In this modern age of technology and speed, what is taught in master crafter Nigel Armitage's renowned workshop follows a very traditional and timeless theme. Here, for the first time, he offers a learning resource and projects for leathercrafters who believe that high quality matters, in how you make things and in the finished results.
Enjoy learning the time-tested approach as Armitage helps you learn traditional techniques and projects that use them in modern ways.
From beginner projects like a simple card holder, to intermediate projects like a belt, to advanced projects like a round-bottom bag, each project, while modern in terms of using new tools and materials, is still very much seated in the foundations of the craft. Yes, a laced leather bag is quick to make and looks nice but will not last. A traditional saddle-stitched bag becomes an heirloom because, if looked after, its longevity will span generations.
