Split over three days, with the first looking at leather in theory and cleaning and maintenance, the second on repairs and graining, and the third day spent with us practising colour matching, looking at more unusual repairs, and being able to spend the extra time on the practical repair side – until you can complete it with little to no input from the instructor. This level of instruction will lend you the confidence to immediately start minor repairs – though we recommend a period of practice to enhance your confidence with aspects such as colour matching and repair work.
Optionally available is the Colourlock LRT master kit, to give you the tools and materials to complete repairs straight away and the colour system to custom blend paints for immediate resources. When purchased with booking, this benefits you a saving of around £400 off RRP.
