In this three-day workshop learn the basics of the intricate trade of leatherplaiting under the expert instruction of Bill Webb.

Using kangaroo leather, you will make either an 8-strand whip or a 13-strand belt.

Kangaroo leather is often used by Australian leatherplaiters as it is one of the strongest leathers available. Its unique structure allows it to be cut very thin and still retain its strength.
