Make your own Heirloom Decoration for Christmas Future
Every one has their Christmas traditions - from a ratty old stocking you've had since you were little to a strange condiment that you would never, ever eat with your roast normally. As cheesy as it is, Christmas is a time to snuggle up with family and indulge in a bit of lovely soft focus nostalgia.
This year take a little time out to create a new festive tradition and make an heirloom Christmas decoration for the future. Our wonderful leather working teacher Dee Maxwell is leading a workshop where you can make a hand-crafted leather tree decoration, using lovely metallic leathers. Pick from our templates, and learn how to layer the leather up to form a design. Then stitch it together to form a 3D shape, add bells, beads and tassels to give it a personal touch, and take home a new Christmas tradition! You can go traditional with your colours, or use our gorgeous modern pastel metallics for something a little more current - the choice is yours.
