Leather Paring without the Blood, Sweat and Tears

gallery/pared-leather-ag

Leather paring is a discipline which often intimidates and can take many years to master but with a systematic approach this need not be the case.

 

This one day hands-on workshop will introduce safe and effective working methods for paring bookbinding leathers by hand.

 

The workshop will cover edge-paring, working with a spoke-shave and thinning down leather with a Scharffix. The course also includes some basic tool selection, maintenance and sharpening..

This workshop is suitable for beginners and those with basic experience.
