Craft a custom leather dog collar - get ready for a fun crafting experience and a fabulous handmade take-home souvenir for your favourite dog! Using real leather and stylish metal hardware (rivets, d-rings, buckles etc.), you will taught to make a designer dog collar using leather hand working tools. We'll start with a welcome introduction, a glass of bubbly, and a little tour of my rooftop loft where we'll be creating. Following this, I'll give you a brief explanation and overview of what we'll be working with - the leather, the metal, and the tools. Next you'll select the leather colours and metalware to suit your doggie's style. Then we'll get to work! You'll use many leather hand working techniques including punching, cutting, beveling, burnishing, slicking and polishing. You'll love the smell and the feel of the leather in your hands. It's a satisfying process that mixes both soft techniques (polishing and burnishing) and quite forceful techniques (such as the cutting and punching) to craft a cool collar for your dog.

The workshop takes place in my loft apartment in the trendy area of Friedrichshain. It's a spacious open plan loft, with a terrace and a rooftop view over Berlin to the TV tower. If the weather is warm and lovely can decide to work outside on the terrace. Access is easy as we have a lift to the 5th floor. There are a lot of public transport options to get here: we are close to Warschauer Str S-Bahn and U-Bahn, and the tram stop for Revaler Str.
Collars are adjustable, but the approximate neck size of your dog is required.
Please let me know the size of your dog's neck when you book or at least before arrival. Thanks!
