    No problem mate - if you could just let me know either way before march 1 St it would be a big help.

    Hi Bri, been thinking about your "leathercraft workshop" would you be up for making a tankard, I was hoping it might be possible to make one myself. If you would be prepared to fetch some additional materials (I'll gladly pay any costs) so as I could make one myself, then not only would I have learned a new skill, but also a momento of the moot, cheers Ian....

    Do you mean a jacket for a tankard, or an ornamental tankard made entirely from leather - either is possible but both would take quite a bit of time, the jacker would be the easiest and therefore the quickest.
    I have thought of a group project / memento that would include using the swivel knife, bevel stamp and colour that would take a couple of hours each to make - in other words done in an afternoon but there is no reason
    why we couldn't look into doing your tankard as a one off, "bother I thought it was going to be a quiet weekend"
    Let me know which you were thinking off and I will look into it - anything is possible
    cheers Bri

    Hi Bri,
    I was thinking of a full leather tankard, I've been looking at making one for a while, but not had the confidence to start. I don't mind if it's a smaller size if that makes it easier/quicker, as I can always maker a bigger one once I get home, it's about learning the technique's and tricks-of-the-trade. Cheers Ian...

    Getting closer, I tried my under-quilt in the garden last weekend to get the fit right.

    Wish I'd found this forum sooner. Hope the Gods smile on you all with the weather and I look forward to seeing the pics
