MODERN MAKES: Leather Artist Folio / Passport Holder


Come to the ST LEONARDS MODERN GOODS store right on the East Sussex coast and learn to make something beautiful in leather!

As it gets colder, it's nice to be inside making something with your hands, there's a great feeling of accomplishment from learning a new skill and using the piece you've crafted, every day.

This MODERN MAKE is for the rather beautiful Artist's Folio. It's a gorgeous piece of leather folded into a pouch that's perfect for carrying either an A6 sketchbook or a passport. When you slip a pen or pencil though the tongue - it forms a nifty lock.

You'll start your day by cutting out your Italian saddlery leather from tracing round a card pattern. You'll punch out your stitching holes and then hand stitch the seams in the thread colour of your choice whilst getting to grips with a few fun hand tools.

You'll be "riveted" by the hardware press on the Artist's Folio and joyful as you personalise it with your initials.

Each workshop is for x 4 people and will take place on the beautiful shop floor of St Leonards Modern Goods while the store is open so there will be other people coming in and walking around - impressed to see your amazing handiwork!

Workshops will be from 10am til 1:30pm and refreshments will be provided. Bring your own lunch or head out for food afterwards when you're done. 

Cost of workshop: £45 and includes all leather materials and tools*

* Pencil and Sketchbook  for the Artist's Folio can be purchased separately or use your own.

Why not get a group of friends together to take part as a bunch?

See you soon!
