Boasting countless benefits and applications, hand-made leather ware is a durable and time-worn material that can be used for fashion and home projects. With How to Work With Leather, any crafter can learn the art of creating contemporary designs with minimum fuss. This book covers all aspects of leather working, from simple techniques covering all the basic materials, threads, dyes and adhesives, as well as designing and pattern making, paring or skiving, splitting or channelling, and some slightly more advanced techniques such as moulding and surface decoration.

Each technique is carefully explained in detail with step-by-step instructions and accompanied by several projects to keep you constantly inspired. From a cheerful hide belt and purse to an everlasting passport holder and folding top bag, this spirited primer offers a range of projects for beginner and advanced leather worker. Once the crafter has become comfortable with basic techniques, she/he can graduate to more complex leather working techniques in the advanced chapter.

This book includes everything you need to bring the highly sought after handcrafted leather to your wardrobe and your home. Word count: 25,000
