Leather belt making workshop

A good pair of boots, your favourite jeans, that t-shirt you’d happily never take off; there’s something special about these things that become a part of you. They tell a story about where you’ve been and what you’ve done. Never is this truer than with a good leather belt. Instead of buying one off the shelf, turn back the clocks and begin the story the right way by making your own belt using traditional methods at Sovereign Hill’s leather harness workshop.
