About the Course
Sometimes what you want to learn is not listed in a specific course.
Think of this as an 'All Skills Session', an opportunity to look at a specific area or item you need to work on.
This can include such things as: Inlays, Overlays, Piping, Rolled Edges, Handles, Padding, Lining, Gussets, Design, Pattern Making, Plaiting, Whip Making, Quirts, Sheaths, Welts, Straps, Pouches, Hinges, Closures and the list goes on.
If you have an area you would like look at in detail, get in touch and let's discuss it.
Each session is tailored to you, your level of skill and what you need to learn, just let me know.
This is listed as a 1 day course, but like all of my courses, this can be extended to suit you.
Drop me an email with what you have in mind and an idea when you would like to undertake the course and I will let you know dates available.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

If you are looking at working to a specific item, let me know the details so I can ensure what you need is made available.
I traveled from the Pacific Northwest part of the U.S.A. to spend a full five days under the instruction of Nigel. It was time and money well spent and I would not hesitate to do it again. Nigel is a very amicable and multi-talented individual with a great sense or humor and human sensibilities. His knowledge and expertise in the art of leathersmithing is impeccable, and his passion for what he does shows through in his non-intimidating manner of instruction. In our present day and time, where technology has all but erased a great amount of knowledge and skills of once necessary crafts that have all but disappeared, Nigel is one of those rare individuals today who is attempting to carry on and revitalize skills that have a history as far back as has been recorded by humankind. If you want to know how to work in leather, create items of quality, then Nigel Armitage is one who you should seriously consider to guide you into your goals.

Nigel was a great teacher really enthusiastic and has an brilliant knowledge of his craft. Every process was thoroughly explained and well guided, I never felt overwhelmed. Although there is a lot of techniques to cover (one day can never cover everything!) Nigel will make sure you get the most out of your day. I thought it was definitely worth the price and I now have a new passion in leather work.
Refreshments are provided, the coffee is excellent !
