Workshop | Padded watch strap with your own pattern (FULLY BOOKED)
In this course you will make a padded watch strap, based on your own created pattern. Learn how to create this watch strep from start to finish: from designing and cutting a pattern that matches your pricking irons and specific measurements, to a finished product to take home and be proud of. You will get to know more about how to choose the right top and bottom leather for your project and how to integrate three different reinforcement materials to strengthen your design. During this full day course you’ll practice different techniques: install a buckle, improve your hand stitching skills and get more experienced in edge finishing.
Each step is shown and guided by a professional trainer and then performed by the participants themselves. The informal workshop setting and small group of participants allow a flexible structure so that everyone can go at their own speed and can learn from one another.
This course is fully booked. Please keep me informed if any spots become available or if new course dates become available.

Leather crafting materials are required for most of the Leatherbox events.

You will always find an overview of this on the event page. Don't have all the necessary materials for the workshop? Order the missing materials in our webshop, or contact Leatherbox. The participant is responsible for arranging the materials in time.
For orders just before the course date, or if you do not have the right materials with you on the day itself, we cannot guarantee that there will be sufficient stock in our wholesale. Therefore, place an order as soon as possible, so that you have the materials at home prior to your participation. Do you want us to prepare your order for you on the course day? Then choose 'Pick up in the store' and send us a message that these items are for the workshop (mail to email@example.com stating the workshop and your webshop order number).

The materials that Leatherbox provides are on loan and intended to be able to follow the workshop. These materials remain the property of Leatherbox. You can take home the design you make during the workshop.

Christina Roth is a leather goods manufacturer and restorer based in Salzburg, Austria. After setting foot in a saddlery workshop for the first time she was fascinated by the sound of the old wooden floor and the smell of leather. It inspired Christina to start as a leather worker in 2012. After getting all the necessary certificates and qualifications she opened her own craft business in 2018, where she also teaches.
Christina is a real ambassador for her profession as she participated in several television programs (ORF, Puls4) and collaborates as a jury member in competitions. Furthermore she was hired by Domestika, one of the largest online learning platforms, to design a bag making course that was launched in autumn 2022 and was translated in seven different languages.
In 2023 she won an entrepreneurs award for practicing her profession, that is protected in Austria.
