Discover the wonderful mouldable properties of vegetable-tanned leather in this practical workshop. You will create your own mould or former on the first day, and learn how to polish, decorate, seal and edge-finish your object on the next, turning it into a bowl, box, tray, purse or other small container. As a background to this course, Pitt Rivers Visiting Maker in Leather, Katherine Pogson, will share her research into moulded leather containers from the Museum collection, including leather bottles from Sudan and Turkey, and gunpowder flasks from Africa. Thursday 28 May, 13.00-16.30 & Friday 29 May, 10.00-13.30 Booking essential - please see website for details.
