Create a pair of leather snowshoe bindings for use with traditional snowshoes in this half-day workshop!
We start by using 10oz vegetable tanned leather, dyed to a colour of your choosing and joined with hand-hammered copper rivets. A leather strap and steel buckle secures the binding around your heel, while a simple cord-lock secures it over your foot. Throughout the course we’ll discuss the tying and use of traditional lamp-wick bindings, and the difference between various traditional snowshoe styles. You’ll leave at the end of the day with a pair of totally unique and highly functional snowshoe bindings.
This workshop is a wonderful introduction to leather-crafting skills. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn all about winter travel from the best in the business!
