BLC approved leather expert training course

29 July 2009

Week 1 will be spent on-site at BSLT, University of Northampton. Each delegate will carry out the process of making their own leather from raw material to finished product. This process will involve all participants using machinery that would be operated in a working tannery. This direct hands-on element of the course will be supplemented with the relevant theory.

Week 2 will be held at BLC Leather Technology Centre and will involve the commercial aspects of leather after manufacture. BLC will work with delegates to give an insight into supply chain issues including critical factors in leather making, performance, restricted substances, environmental aspects, problem solving and trouble shooting.

This unique opportunity to carry out practical leather-making and a global view of leather in the market place is a must have for anyone in the leather industry. For further information please contact: or Tel: + 44 (0)1604 679941 or visit
