Basic Hand Stitching

Basic Hand Stitching


Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the simple elegance of hand stitched leather work. Mastery with needle and thread is the most fundamental skill in the leather arts. This workshop, taught by Gordon Andrus, will cover basic double needle harness stitching using a pricking iron to mark out the stitching.  Casting a hitch in the stitch and tying off with a hidden knot will also be covered. 

An extensive handout is included with your attendance.
