What you'll do
Each workshop will be based in a local coffee shop, where we'll start by getting you familiar with all the tools you will be using to make your own leather pouch. I'll introduce you to the basic skills needed in leatherwork, such as cutting, punching holes, hand stitching, and edge finishing. Then we'll spend a little time choosing a design, sketching, making templates and selecting your choice of leather. Once you have your templates ready, the fun begins! I will take you through the whole process of crafting your own item step-by-step until you have a completed leather item that you made entirely yourself! There are a maximum of 5 participants in each workshop, so you will get lots of personal instruction and help all the way through. No experience in leatherwork is needed - just a desire to have some fun and learn a new skill.
All leather and tools will be provided. You don't need to bring anything other than yourself.
I'm a designer and maker of leather bags, wallets, belts and more! I learnt my craft from a skilled leather worker in Saigon, who spent 5 months mentoring me in all aspects of leatherwork. I since moved to Danang, where I've been living for over 2 years and have established my own brand of leather accessories here. I have a passion for teaching, especially something as fun as making your own leather souvenir!
Where you'll be
We will be holding the workshop in one of the many local cafes in Danang, so you will be able to enjoy a Vietnamese coffee or 2 as you work.
Keep these in mind
Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 5 guests ages 16 and up can attend.
I will usually run workshops in rooms with a/c but be prepared for the heat anyway. Even the little physical exertion you will be doing can make you very hot in this humid city, so wear cool and comfortable clothing.
