Wet Molding Leather

The objective of the course is to manufacture a perfectly fitting leather bag or leather sheath...
The objective of the course is to manufacture a perfectly fitting leather bag or leather sheath for a simple object, such as a knife, a smartphone, or a digital camera. The first step is to make a positive model from wood of the object that you bring along to use as a mold. Raw tanned leather is subsequently soaked in water, then stretched over the mold and fastened with prepared stencils. While the leather dries, you will be shown the technique of sewing leather on sample pieces. After drying overnight, the deep drawn parts are cut to shape, sewn, and dyed as desired.
  • Please bring along a suitable, simple object, such as a knife, a hand tool, a smartphone, or a digital camera.
