Leather Book Binding Workshop FAQ

What is leather book binding ?

The process of turning raw animal skins into a variety of items, including handbags, skirts, belts, and shoes, is known as leather crafting. These objects are made by skilled artisans using techniques including cutting, stamping, punching, and tanning. The process of making leather involves a variety of tools, such as crease-drilling chisels and embossing stamps.

Bookbinding is the act of securely securing writings between two hard covers that can be constructed from materials like fabric, cardboard, or even leather itself. The degree of flexibility offered by the various binding materials varies. Combining bookbinding and leather making techniques, leather bookbinding enables the consolidation of words and the binding of them with a beautiful and durable leather cover.

Can I take my finished book home with me?

Yes of course! You get to keep the book you make throughout the course. You’ll have a lovely leather-bound book to display your artistic ability and expertise.

Do I need any prior experience in leather bookbinding to join the workshop?

Our beginner-friendly leather crafting courses are facilitated by knowledgeable facilitators who will guide you through each stage of making your leather creation. In addition to being a rewarding and inspiring experience for you, you get to keep and use the leather item you created after the session.

Can I have my name printed on the cover of my book to make it more unique?

Yes our participants can have their name printed on the cover, a fastener, a lock, a bookmark as customisable features in their products. Additionally, you can choose from a number of leather accessories in a range of colours from our selection. This might also be one that you pre-order! There is no doubt that after a few days you would be able to take home the product of your dreams, even if we might not be able to customise your products on the spot depending on what you’d like! Your leather accessories will seem more unique and personalised with custom goods. It is suitable as a gift or even for yourself.

Is the leather book binding workshop suitable for children ?

No, children under the age of 13 are not allowed due to to the significant danger of harm from the cutters and needles. However, this workshop is great for adults and teenagers. 

What is the difference between leather and pleather?

The main differences are to aesthetic appeal, wholesomeness, and durability. Real leather has received appreciation from those who value it as a material with strong aesthetic appeal and history that upholds fashion tradition. Because it can be cleaned with water or soapy water and then let to dry, leather is simple to keep. As long as one washes up afterwards and blots away any remaining soap from the surface, water shouldn’t harm the material. In contrast, pleather has a reputation for feeling rubbery. Although leather doesn’t have pores, its surface can still be cleaned with soap and water, as is advised for all materials. To maintain the gloss, many people who purchase pleather coat or wax it. When compared to leather, this gives it an unnatural appearance that is not appealing.

Can I bring my own leather scraps?

Yes you are able to but do let us know before the workshop to avoid complications

Does the thickness of my book or my leather matter?

Yes, it does. Our leather bookbinding workshops involve working with a predetermined number of free pages as well as precisely measured leather and end paper pieces. Please get in touch with us in advance so we can inform you of the paper needs if you plan to bring your own text blocks or loose sheets.

Like the thickness of our books, the thickness of our leather is an important factor in the final result. For the leather bookbinding workshop, the leather provided by CraftLabs is appropriate. If you want to, you can bring your own leather scraps (you can, for instance, cut out parts from leather purses, jackets, or other items), but it is not necessary.

What materials and tools will be provided for virtual leather crafting workshops?

Before the day of the virtual workshop, an individual leather making kit would be packaged and delivered to you with all the supplies you’ll need. The workshop would then be led by our facilitators through Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or any other online platform of your choice, allowing you and the other participants to create your own leather goods in the convenience of your own homes. You would need to have your own cutting mat if you could.

The materials you will get in your DIY/Virtual Kit include;

  • Scissors

  • Leather piece
