About the Course

Christmas workshops

Come and spend a fun day making unique Christmas gifts.

In the morning we'll cover all the techniques for making small leather covered books, key ring purses, tassels and cards and you'll make one or two of each. It's amazing how many ways there are to use leather - even for the cards! We'll start with the cards and tassels to let everyone relax and after coffee move onto books and tiny purses. After lunch make more of everything or concentrate on your favourites.

Bring a small group of friends (maximum 3) on a mutually convenient date. There will be plenty of individual attention and handouts to take home on each of the four projects. You'll be able to make more at home with some very simple tools. Everyone will go home with a 'goody bag' of small leather pieces.

I can guarantee a very enjoyable day with lots of laughs.

You'll find details of my regular workshops on book making and mount cutting on the Craft Courses website or my own website.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials are supplied, including 'goody bag' of small leather pieces and the pattern for the purses. They'll be lots of tea/coffee, cake and mince pies (of course) but please bring a packed lunch. Presentation boxes for the small books and leather key ring purses are also included to make them into a really special gift.
