Sharp tools are essential to our bookbinding and during this three-hour session you will make your own leather handled paring knife from a blank and a strop to take away with you.
Paring knives are an essential tool for using with leather and I will be offering a day learning how to pare leather later in the year.
Richard will teach you to sharpen your own tools using the techniques and holding devices demonstrated during the session.
All materials and equipment will be supplied and you will leave with your own knife and strop.
Stapleford Granary has easy car parking and is within walking distance of Shelford railway station.
