Learn basic leatherwork skills and make your own custom belt in this three hour, project-based workshop.

With a focus on the material, tools and process, you’ll learn basic leather crafting techniques and put them into practice creating your very own leather belt. Try your hands at cutting leather, bevelling and burnishing and go home with a finished piece that you will be proud of for years to come!

Along the way you will also gain some insight into working with leather, it’s structure and layers, find out the difference between full-grain and genuine leather, and how to properly care for your leather items.

A fun and practical workshop suitable for beginners, or anyone in need of a fancy new belt!

Haylee has been assembling beautiful things with her hands since not long after she could walk and has been working with leather specifically for many years. Starting out with leather aprons for a Melbourne cafe, menu holders and various other commissioned projects, she soon became known for her attention to detail and fine craftsmanship.

Haylee’s label Evie Black creates bespoke Leather handbags and is in the process of expanding into homewares and accessories. Expect to see plant hangers, laptop cases and some awesome collaborations with other local makers.

The class was great and Haylee was an amazing teacher.

Simple to understand instructions and a great range of tools and materials.

It was so nice to leave the class with a belt that I had made and there was even enough time to make a keyring.
