Handmade Leather Satchel

About the Course

During this 2-day intensive course you will be making a leather crossbody bag. Prior to the course date, you will get to select the style of bag you wish to make as well as the colour of the leather. The pieces will be pre-cut to save on time but during the course you will learn how to construct and hand-stitch the bag and to finish all the raw leather edges. You will also get to choose from a selection of hardware & embellishments you wish to use to customise your design.

This class is perfect for beginners. You will learn all the basics and get an understanding of what tools & materials you will need to continue making bags at home. The course will run on consecutive weekends, so a Sunday and the following Saturday. Contact us for more details!
