Leather Armor Patterns & Tutorials

Welcome to the Prince Armory Academy! Start your journey into the art of leathercraft and learn how to build epic suits of armor and other interesting crafting projects with our incredible patterns and top-tier video tutorials!

Become Our Digital Apprentice

Get started with the first module of our Digital Apprenticeship program and take the beginner to intermediate crash course to massively accelerate your learning experience as you learn by doing.  The Fantasy Armor series is purpose-built to give you a guided tour packed solid with demonstrations, tips, & techniques that will catapult you to new heights as you gain new skills and knowledge. The pattern set comes with two distinct styles and each video lesson demonstrates new details and options for you to consider for your own armor creation. 

At the end of the program, you will have an epic fitted suit all of your own made with your own two hands, but more importantly, you’ll have the skills to move forward with even more elaborate and exciting projects in the future.

Keep Growing!

Imperial Knight Series Female Style

Imperial Knight Series Male Style

When you are ready to expand upon your knowledge from there or want more options for your armor projects, consider trying out the Imperial Knight series which will add an all new style and demonstrate even more details and tooling options.  One additional bonus of this series is that all of the components are laser cutter friendly and most parts will fit in common desktop sized laser cutting units such as Glowforge.

Just Getting Started?

The Warrior series is for absolute beginners and will provide an easy, fast and simple introduction to leathercraft and armor making and will focus on the foundations in greater detail.
