In connection with the exhibition Parall(elles): A History of Women in Design, the Museum’s School for the Arts has teamed up with Montreal-based community workshop Les Affûtés to offer a variety of courses that teach handicraft skills! Please note that these courses are given in French.

This 3-hour workshop led by Diana, a leatherworker by profession, will be a great opportunity to discover the secrets of leatherwork. You will learn different basic techniques such as: cutting the material, marking and opening the stitches, pattern cutting, sewing the binding by hand, and finishing the leather.



Skills required: none, just meticulousness and good humor.

Notebook size: 6 inches X 5 inches. Notebook of 60 pages.

Materials: All the basic materials are supplied and included in the registration price.

Reservation terms: Enrollment is limited to 10 participants per course. Workshops with fewer than five participants will be cancelled.

Cancellation policy: Refunds are available in full up to seven business days before the first class, minus a $50 administration fee. Withdrawals less than seven business days before the activity begins are non-refundable unless due to exceptional circumstances, in which case participants are reimbursed in full.
