What's included in the price?

What is provided: You can choose from a range of 100% reclaimed leather and materials, or bring your own.
Tea and coffee and other refreshments are provided, but crafting is hungry work so we take 45 minutes to grab some lunch.

I had such a great time making my bag with Eli, she was so lovely and accommodating, and I have learnt so many great skills. Not only that but I have come away with my new favourite handbag - AND I MADE IT!! I love her ethos and to know everything is reclaimed is even better! If you've ever wanted to try something new, and make something super special, this is such a great idea!

Thanks again, I have been using my bag everyday since!!
