About the Course

Covid19 update: offering over 100+ courses in Cumbria & the Lakes, we hope to resume all 'in person' courses in late July 2020. During lock down, we've upgraded a listed barn into a beautiful spacious workshop studio, enabling courses to take place with 2m distancing, hand washing and two staircases. It's possible usual catered lunches may not be included for summer courses, depending on circumstances at the time.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

Leather worker Ruth Pullan specialises in creating hand stitched bags and accessories using high quality British materials. Join her for this workshop which will give you the basic skills needed to make a small leather bag.

You will learn how to:
- dye and condition natural vegetable tanned leather
- stitch using the two needle traditional saddler's stitch
- bevel and burnish raw edges for a professional finish
- fit buckles and fastenings to complete your bag.

Please contact us/Ruth before the course if you have a particular colour in mind.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Welcome drinks : fresh coffee & home made biscuits, a lovely 2 course Aga lunch served in our farmhouse kitchen or outside in the Greystoke Cycle Cafe Tea Garden as soon as it's warm enough. To finish off the day, a freshly made Cream Tea (including Aga-baked scones, cream and jam).

Our days are considered special treats; many come back time and time again and often combine it with a short break to the Lake District.

We have been hosting and organising 'Quirky Workshops' since 2005 from our friendly family run Cycle Cafe Tea Garden on the northern fringes of the Lake District. All our tutors are carefully hand selected experts and professionals and many considered as leading nationally in their field.
