Meet Gustavo, who tells you about his beginnings and his influences before showing you some of his past work. Then go through the material that will be taught in the course.

Gustavo shows you how he comes up with new design ideas for his handmade bags and purses. Review the materials and tools that you will be working with and how to use them. Then, see how to choose the right leather and learn the different sewing options you can use for your project.

How do you make a pattern? Discover how to draw the pattern on leather and learn about the cutting process. Once you have it, go into the curing phase and see the different products that can be applied to leather.

Give shape to your bag! Practice several techniques for making holes in cut leather, see how to measure, and learn how to mark seam lines. Make the handles for your bag and learn the hammering techniques that Gustavo uses.

Next, learn about two types of stitches: the simple one used to sew the handles and the "two-needle" used to sew the gussets. Place rivets on the base, assemble the handles, finish the cover, and make the closure for the bag.

Once the bag is finished, Gustavo shows you how to add the final details and give your bag a custom touch. By the end of the course, you will have everything you need to start creating your own leather bags and purses.

What is this course's project?

Design and create a rawhide bag. For the final project, Gustavo creates a bag that is 32cm wide x 15cm deep x 20cm high with 2mm thick leather.

Who is it for?

Anyone who would like to learn the craft of bag making (or saddlery), either to make their own bag as a hobby or as a starting point for creating their own brand of bags.

What you need

No prior knowledge is needed, but Gustavo’s tricks and tips will be easier to follow if you have some experience in crafts.

Regarding materials, you should prepare: a 1m2 leather plate, a hammer, a punch with a 1mm hole, a steel ruler, a square, a knife or cutter, a surface to cut on, a piece of wood that can be hammered, as well as rivets and a forge for riveting.
