Recently, Jacques was commissioned to make a sheath for a Hultaforce axe. He enjoyed the process so much that he decided it needed a matching handle guard as well. That is what ultimately sparked the idea of hosting a new workshop. Each attendee will bring along their own axe, and spend a morning crafting a custom fitted sheath and handle guard specifically for their trusty axe.
During the workshop, the topics we will cover are; Custom Pattern Making; Leather Molding; Hand-stitching (Baseball stitch); Finishing Techniques (Burnishing & Edge creasing).
The workshop will be held on Saturday 6 July from 8h30 until 13h00. Coffee/tea and light snacks will be provided. No prior leather work experience needed - beginners welcome. Just bring along your axe and learn some new skills.
Cost pp: R950 includes all materials and snacks.
Venue: Rust-en-Vrede Gallery, 10 Wellington Rd, Durbanville, Cape Town, 7550
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp Jacques (082 816 2277) for any further queries or to book your spot. Each workshop is limited to 6 people to ensure as much "hands-on" assistance as possible.
We look forward to having you join us!
