Reviews: Average review: 0 Number of reviews: (0) Level: Beginner Category:

Would you like to learn how to work with leather and create a useful, timeless object? Would you like to wear a unique, handcrafted watch on your wrist?

In this 3-hour workshop, Alexis will leas us through the creation of a beautiful leather watch! For this occasion, we’re pleased to collaborate with Montreal-based Chikiboom, a company that shares our values of enlightened consumption, local purchasing and ecology! The watch dials and buckles on offer come from this beautiful project.

First, we’ll cover the various tools and techniques of basic leatherworking, making the leather watchband: choice of leather and design; cutting patterns; perforating holes; beveling edges; stitching… Then we’ll move on to finishing and assembling the strap to the dial.

Everyone will have the opportunity to personalize their project according to their style and desires, thanks to several choices of leather colors, dials, buckles and bracelet designs!

Skills required: none, apart from a love of punctuality.

The price includes all necessary materials (leather, dial and hardware), as well as extensive advice.
