Warehouse421 presents Advanced Leather Crafting course with 24th Street founder

Abu Dhabi, 17 November 2019:  As part of Warehouse421’s fall program, Advanced Leather Crafting, an intensive and hands-on three-day leather crafting course, is set to begin on 27 November at the center in Mina Zayed, Abu Dhabi.

Taught by Naresh Kumar, founder and creative director of Dubai leather atelier 24th Street, the advanced course will allow participants to progress to making larger scale items from leather, such as cross-body or bucket bags, enabling them to further develop their skills.

In the first session, course participants will receive a refresh to the fundamentals of leathercraft. Following that, they will choose their tools and the right types of leather to prepare for the construction of their preferred products.

The last two sessions of the course will see participants chiseling, burnishing and sanding their products of leather. They will also learn how to master their saddle stitching, ensuring that their finished products are ready for use.

Advanced Leather Crafting is for individuals above the age of 18 and is AED800 per person. For more information and booking, please visit:
