Learn the steps required to make a pair of spectacles from water buffalo horn. Choose from a selection of horn plates and learn how to cut a front, file, polish and work with this traditional, natural and sustainably-farmed material.  

Explore the differences between working with horn and acetate, and go through spectacle-making processes including milling recesses, adding lens grooves and pinning hinges.

Based at the Cubitts Workshop in King's Cross, the sessions is led by Founder Tom, Production Manager Matej and Workshop Manager Mat.
