The Leatherworking Starter Handbook - Beginner Friendly Guide to Leather Crafting Process Tips and Techniques
Publisher: Stephen Fleming
Suppose, you have to appear for an exam next week, who would be the go-to person for seeking help and guidance?
Option 1: A Subject Matter Expert (SME) who studying/teaching the subject for several years and often assumes while explaining that the basics are covered or looks it from their frame of reference.
Option 2: Someone who also started from scratch as you have and passed the exam just last week. He/She knows the exact process, challenges, doubts, and roadblocks you may be facing and can think from your perspective.
If your option is 2, you are in the right place.
I am a Technology Consultant by profession, and started my leathercraft journey in the year 2014. I started by going through multiple YouTube videos, courses, Facebook groups, and finally completed my first project after four months.
I was confused and was lost in the magnitude of information available online. I firmly believe that while starting, you need exact, necessary, minimalistic information to start your first project, pardon: Complete your first project!
So I started writing this book to provide a minimalistic approach to information required to start your first leather project. It covers:
- History of leather
- Basics Tools and their usage
- Making Patterns
- Cutting Patterns
- Beveling, Embossing, Stamping
- Stitching basics
- Coloring and Finishing
- Tips, Techniques for the beginner
-Leather Crafting, Physical Pain & Ergonomics * (New Chapter added!)
- Appendix: List of online resources available for free patterns, tips, and techniques.
I still remember the initial doubts I had and the tips which helped me.
This book is for people who are in their first lap (0-3 years) of Leather crafting journey and want to have a holistic idea of processes, tools, and need help in their initial projects.
I have included photographs of realistic projects of beginners explaining the process and standard operating procedure while starting.
So, what are you waiting for?
