Short courses in contemporary leather accessories design by Katherine Pogson, London
Hello New York! We're pleased to announce a new practical glove-making masterclass over 5 days in Brooklyn. You will learn how to take accurate measurements of your own hand, adapt a pattern to make a bespoke block, make a toile, practice a range of specific seam types, and hand stitch your own pair of fitted gloves in fine leather.
This practical, hands-on weekend focuses on decorative techniques for working both hard and soft leathers to create jewellery and small gifts. Projects include cuffs and wrist-pieces, necklaces, body adornments, hair accessories and more, such as tassels, key rings, belts, purses, small boxes and simple wallets.
