Advanced Hand Stitching: The Box Stitch

Advanced Hand Stitching: The Box Stitch


This is a unique opportunity to learn one of the less known stitching techniques of fine leatherwork. 

At one time many cases or boxes were made from leather, and the makers of these case goods employed the use of hand box stitching.  Though rarely taught today, this stitching technique is a hallmark of the finest work in leather and is still used in the finest case work.  Workshop attendees will progress through the steps with Gordon to learn the technique.

An extensive handout is included with your attendance.
