What you'll do

This course provides a great opportunity to learn the difficult techniques and processes of glove making. Learn to stitch a glove. This course is popular in UK and abroad as well. We had many local and international students travel to UK specially to participate in this course. Now we have it in SL for foreigners. Starting from selecting leather, stretching, cutting to final finishing, you will learn the whole process of glove making, including the special tools you need. - You can - explore leather manipulating techniques, pattern making for gloves, leather cutting skills and stitching skills - explore measuring techniques for glove making - explore basic hand stitching techniques and advanced finishing techniques in further hours if needed. Prior skills in glove making are not needed to participate in this course as you will learn all the processes and techniques. Perfect for beginners as well as experienced. It would be useful to have some stitching and pattern making skills, though this is not essentials as the basics will be taught.
