On the day

Learn the basics of the intricate trade of leatherplaiting. Using Kangaroo leather, you will make your choice of an 8 strand whip or a 13 strand belt. Kangaroo leather is often used by Australian leatherplaiters as it is one of the strongest leathers available. Its unique structure allows it to be cut very thin and still retain its strength.
