Leatherwork Tools Available for Loan

April 21, 2022

Are you looking for a craft for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Venturers? You’d like to make a leather woggle, wristband, pouch, or sheath but don’t have the tools?

I have been leathercrafting for 30 years or so and have amassed enough mallets, stamps, punches, etc. for a group of 25 or so. Even a press for those who don’t want to use a mallet!

All are available for loan to any Scouting or Guiding group in the greater Ottawa Area (pickup is from the west end of Ottawa).

All you need to supply is the leather pieces themselves.

Unsure of exactly how to do leathercrafting? I can show you and your scouters the basics in a half hour or so!
