Ruth Pullen, Leather Axe and Knife Sheath Making

Ruth Pullan is a leatherworker based in Yorkshire who specialises in hand stitched leather work using British materials and traditional techniques. On this day long workshop you will make an axe sheath for your own axe and a knife sheath for a standard Mora style 106/120 carving knife. You will learn how to condition leather, how to finish the edges, how to stitch using two needles and how to set rivets among other techniques during the day. You will leave with a set of new skills which you can apply to your own projects at home and hopefully be able to make covers for your other tools in the future.

All materials and tools are provided for you on the day. You will need to bring a packed lunch - drinks are provided!
