Join me in my artist's studio space in the heart of Melbourne's creative precinct to learn all the fundamental techniques of hand-sewn leather craft with this fun, practical and hands-on lesson. You will learn to wet form leather, sew leather by hand, finish leather, create your own hand sewing thread from raw linen, and to read, interpret and use patterns. These miniature boots are made using techniques based on real shoemaking. You will also be able to take home your pattern to create them again. Once your boots are completed you can turn them into a key ring, necklace or earrings. Classes are small so you will get lots of individual attention. Perfect for the artistically inclined. Classes are suitable for all skill levels from complete beginners to experienced leather crafters and anyone over 16 years of age. Join a class today.

The workshop will be held at my very own studio space in Collingwood, it's off the main road and right in the heart of Melbourne's popular artistic enclave. The space is shared with over 50 other artists from multiple other disciplines. Smell the coffee, see the street art, you'll feel right at home.
We will meet at the studio on Easey street. The studio is an easy stroll down from the 86 tram on Smith street from the city or Northcote. Everything you will need to create the boots will be provided
