In this modern age of technology and speed, what is taught in master crafter Nigel Armitage's renowned workshop follows a very traditional and timeless theme. Here, for the first time, he offers a learning resource and projects for leathercrafters who believe that quality matters, in how you make things and in the finished results.
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 tool roll, to advanced projects like a leather box, 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.
