Great introductory course to working with leather from E17 specialists Sabel Saddlery at BHW HQ this evening. Not only do they have a great slogan ” Bespoke Leather Design for Horse, Human & Home” but they talked us through the tricks of the trade and led us into a whole new world of making.
Over the course of this one session evening course, we were introduced to leather claws and the art of double stitching, hand burnishing and polishing, different types of linen thread and techniques to wax it, and of course passed on a list of the best suppliers in London to seek out the necessary tools to get started.
Fear not. If you missed this one, and fancy joining the next one, new dates will be announced shortly. And check out www.sabelsaddlery.co.uk for a full insight into their full range of products from stirrup leathers to cat collars and of course the opportunity to ‘pimp your hide’!
