Waxing the Thread - Issue 3



‘Waxing the Thread’ is a practical workshop magazine for hobbyists of traditional leatherwork.

Issue 3, starts with a simple step-by-step guide aimed at beginners and will be a good reminder of the basic techniques learnt in Issue 1 & 2. The guide is also a bonus for those more experienced leatherworkers who appreciate the occasional treat of working from a pre-drawn pattern – just making, without the maths!

Follow the simple step-by-step guide and colour photos as you work through the projects. You’ll also find an essential introduction to pattern making, plus a follow-on project which will reinforce your new pattern making and leatherwork skills.
