Leatherwork Course

Weekend in the hills – CELT – Leatherwork

This course is an introduction to the tools, template design and basic techniques of leatherworking, where participants can expect to make several small hand-stitched items, eg. small bag, belt, purse, phone or knife pouch.

Dyeing leather is also included.

Tutor: Len Canton.

A fee will be due to the tutor based on materials used.

CELT, founded in 2001, is a national charity for environmental education and training and is an award-winning provider of training in traditional and ecological skills, focused on promoting caring for the environment and living in a sustainable manner by using locally sourced natural and recycled materials to make the things we need – tools, buildings, furniture, utensils, sports equipment and toys. 

The CELT ‘Weekend in the Woods’ events are held 2 – 3 times a year at Slieve Aughty Centre (Loughrea, Co. Galway) attracting 100’s of participants interested in learning ecological and traditional skills and knowledge and also because of the scenic rural location and opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in between learning modules.
