Quality materials that will be used during the class include vegetable-tanned Italian leather, Japanese cotton canvas, and vintage dead-stock fabrics. 

For the leather classes, you will learn the fundamentals of leather-crafting including handling of tools & equipment, cutting techniques, gluing, saddle stitching by hand, assembling, edge finishing and hand-stamping (de-bossing) of names/initials. 

For the canvas sewing classes, you will learn how to operate a walking foot industrial sewing machine, techniques for working with thick canvas material, sewing multiple layers of canvas, adding linings, and attaching leather parts onto fabric.

This workshop is a collaboration between the teaching arms of two local bag makers - Atelier Lodge and Sew Fun. Atelier Lodge was born when a local handmade leather goods workshop, Obbi Good Label, decided to teach the craft to a select few aspiring hobbyists. It gradually grew into a full-fledged trade school specialising in the fine art of leather-crafting. Sew Fun was started by the designers and crafters behind Uyii, a Singaporean sewing studio that specialises in locally designed and manufactured fabric bags.

This class is suitable for those with no/some experience in leatherwork and/or machine sewing. To ensure that each student gets sufficient attention, each workshop will have a maximum of 5 students.
