Had a 1-2-1 lesson with Pipa today, and came back having learnt so much! I have no experience working with leather, but wanted to give it ago. I had a very specific period in history that I wanted to examine, which Pipa adapted the course to suit. Full of knowledge and experience, Pipa is a natural tutor with plenty of patience and no question went unanswered. Had a great time discussing my project and came back filled with confidence I now have the knowledge to tackle it. Thank you Pipa! A fantastic experience.

Went with a small group of friends T=to do the beginner course as few of us had done any more than some very basic stuff. Pipa took us through so many techniques and tools in an unhurried pace so you didn’t feel overwhelmed. She also gave some great tips on what to buy starting out vs what not to. She’s an excellent teacher with oodles of patience. An extremely fun day and we’re already planning to return to learn more.

I had a brilliant day at the Wolf Studio. I do quilting so learning a different skill was a challenge but Pipa put me at my ease straight away and made me feel I could achieve my goal to make a bag. I was taught to dye leather, lacing, hand stitching and punching a design onto the leather and that was just a few of the techniques that I was shown. Pipa is a brilliant teacher who has patience and is very giving in her knowledge. She wants you to succeed. Its for any age group. I am 75 and I made a leather bag.

What a great course. I learnt so much about what to do and what not to do. Workshop is very welcoming and set in an amazing old Mill in Leigh with lots of other artists. Easy to find and park. Pippa is lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Lots of dyes and tools to use and try without having to buy your own. Its a great beginners course.
