Leather Journal Making




1 Day


About the Course

These journals allow for a variety of inserts depending on your travel/journalling style. You will use genuine leather to make the cover and a selection of papers to create the booklets. You will learn how to hand sew your booklets, punch and thread your elastic binding and add pockets and bookmarks.

All materials will be provided, including paper, board, various decorative papers, linen thread and adhesive to make your own uniquely designed journal. Tools are provided for use on the day.

Classes are taught through demonstrations with plenty of hands on support. Class numbers are small to ensure everyone gets the help they need.

You’ll take away your unique leather bound journal, new skills, and the satisfaction gained from working creatively.

Tea & coffee will be available throughout the day, please bring a packed lunch.

Courses take place across Lincolnshire.
