    I’m looking for some leather working courses I really want to learn how to work leather properly.

    I’d prefer to do them in person but online wouldn’t be too bad =]

    Does anyone know of any I’m in the central Tablelands of NSW near Bathurst =]

    Dont know of any courses but I do know that the Tablelands LETS group is very active and there may be someone there who does that sort of thing and could teach you.

    here is their website http://lets.clearwater.com.au/?

    and here is the facebook group for them https://www.facebook.com/groups/tablelandlets/?fref=ts

    There are one or 2 saddlers & whipmakers in or around Bathurst, so I’d drop in & ask them. Alternatively, if you are able to travel, Tandy or any other leather wholesaler/retailer can probably help you. There’s also the guild & they have a website.

    I’ve worked leather for quite awhile & not too bad at it. It’s basically been a trial & error situation but I did have a couple of mentors that could help me out when I was really struggling.
