Classic Framed Purse Workshop



Come and enjoy a morning making a classic framed leather purse complete with a detachable shoulder strap. You get to choose from a wide range of leather colours and lining fabrics . The purse measures 20cm across the top of the frame by 17cm tall and 26cm wide and 6 cm deep at the base. The strap can be part leather like the one shown or all chain or all leather. There is also a choice between brushed brass or silver finish hardware to best suit your tastes and design. This is a great introductory course to working with leather on the sewing machine. You will end up with a completely personalised purse which makes the perfect gift or a nice treat to keep for yourself! Maximum 4 people at my Essex studio Workshop duration: 3 hours, 10am to approx. 1pm

My designs are mainly influenced by geometric shapes and Art Deco design. I've built up a wide range of skills and now have the luxury of time and space to make my own products and to experiment with techniques and styles. Ultimately though, I love passing on my passion for leather craft to other people by running a series of workshops. I cater for both individuals with 1 to 1 tuition and groups at my Surrey studio or larger groups at other venues so email me if you'd like more information.
