• Preparation and completion of a leather article – dog collar or waist belt.

• How to prepare the leather

• Demonstration of cutting techniques

• Skiving, staining, creasing and stitch marking

• Hand stitching using correct tools and materials

This class is a good introduction to the basics required before moving on to the bridle class.

Alison Rosoman-Berton trained at the renowned Cordwainers College in the UK and obtained her City in Guilds in Rural Saddlery. She also qualified as a British Veterinary Nurse in 1983. Her direction has changed since living in Australia and she has worked as a Local Law/Animal Management Officer for 10 years. This has enabled her to be aware of animal behavior and meet the needs of the industry regarding Occupational Health and Safety. For the last three years, Alison has been volunteering with Animal Aid Abroad in Indonesia, repairing tack and educating the locals on looking after both their saddlery and harness items and their horses.

Since arriving in Australia in 1985 she has made saddlery items for the NSW Mounted Police, numerous dog muzzles for industry and individual clients, protected dog harnesses as well as the occasional rat harness! Alison only uses traditional methods and is a member of the Saddlers and Harness Makers’ Association of Australia.
