Cosa farete

During our 2.5 to 3 hour workshop you will be introduced to the craft of working with leather and will be guided through the process of making one of a range of original, zero waste leather designs from a single piece of A4 leather. You will have the choice of making either : - An Origami Style Bi Fold Wallet & Card Holder - A Fold Over Passport Holder & Card Case - A Long Travel Wallet We'll start by taking a look at the designs and selecting the leather you would like to work with - In the workshop we have a wide variety of leather colors and textures to choose from and all the 'new' leather we use is sustainably sourced from pre-consumer surplus stock and from a local supplier, whose warehouse used to be in central Porto. With your chosen leather and design ready, you'll be guided through the construction. Step by step we'll be cutting folding, using hand tools, as well as stitching on the leather sewing machine, ensuring you understand the processes and techniques involved. You will also have the opportunity to add your own gold or silver finishing touches by applying a hand embossed design of your own choice, or you can choose from some pre-prepared designs. By the end of the session, you will be taking away some new skills as well as your very own handmade item using high quality upcycled leather to use and enjoy. Join us for this unique experience in Porto!

Ezzie

Hi. I'm a leather worker and designer for 15 years. I trained in England and honed my skills with some of the finest bespoke shoemakers in London before going off to work in the leather and footwear industry around the world. That is how I discovered and fell in love with Porto! Me and my partner (an artist) set up our studio-workshop in 2016 and I began to experiment with techniques I'd used in shoe making on a new project using surplus leather I had collected. Using the concepts of circular and sustainable design, I created a collection of wallets all made from single pieces of A4 leather, called OMMP leathergoods. Above all, I love sharing my materials, knowledge and insights into design and leather goods. I can show that you too, can create your own Handmade, Eco, 'Made in Porto' souvenir to cherish and use for many years :-)
