Leathercraft: Traditional Handcrafted Leatherwork Skills and Projects (Paperback)
- Enjoy learning the time-tested approach as Armitage helps you learn traditional techniques and projects that use them in modern ways.
- From beginner projects like a simple card holder, to intermediate projects like a belt, to advanced projects like a round-bottom bag, each project, while modern in terms of using new tools and materials, is still very much seated in the foundations of the craft.
Yes, a laced leather bag is quick to make and looks nice but will not last. A traditional saddle-stitched bag becomes an heirloom because, if looked after, its longevity will span generations. If you appreciate the latter, then this book will meet your expectations and take your leather creations further than you might think possible.
