BLC and BSLT training course21 May 2009
BLC - Leather Technology Centre has teamed up with The British School of Leather Technology (BSLT) in the UK to offer a leather making training course from June 22 to July 3, 2009. The ten-day course will be split into practical leather making and the commercial aspects of leather in the global marketplace.
Week 1 will be spent on-site at British School of Leather Technology (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 Ltd (BLC) 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.
