August Workshop

The August workshop will be conducted over a two day period on 4 and 5 August 2018, by Lindsay Hunt.

Owen Hartshorn has been braiding and plaiting for many years and has won many ribbons at the Royal Agriculture Show and many other local shows. Owen is very skilled in his field of leatherwork.

This weekend Owen will be showing how bracelets can be made by using different techniques in plaiting. Some will be using a clasp and others will be made using different knots.

This will be an exciting weekend and you will go away with a few bracelets.

Birdsalls will be donating the leather so there will be no kit cost. The Leatherworkers
Guild of NSW would like to thank them for providing the leather.

The clasps used to make the bracelet will need to be paid for on the day. This cannot be
included in a kit cost because it is up to the individual to choose which clasp they would
like and there is a variety you can choose from.
