Making Leather

This Making Leather course is for anyone who wishes to become a Leather Technician or anyone who would benefit from a solid understanding of the leathermaking processes.  It provides an overview of procedures used and their purposes for making a wide range of leathers.

Designed for self-study so that the learner can dictate their own pace, it presents clear and precise information in 10 illustrated parts. This is a technically focused study created by the author, Richard Daniels, based on years of his practical, hands-on experience and industry knowledge. It concerns raw material properties, leather making procedures and outcomes, and production of major leather types from:

  •    Bovine hides
  •    Hair sheep and goat skins
  •    Wool-bearing sheep skins 

It is hope that the learner enjoys this course and feedback is welcomed.
