One day leatherwork course in Essex. Enjoy a day learning to make 3 to 5 leather products of your choice. Choose from a variety of things including a leather bound sketchbook, lined purse with a metal zip, coin purse with a press fastener or felt lined trinket tray. As with the half day course, this is perfect for beginners and will provide you with some of the basic skills and knowledge to go away and continue working with leather on your own. This makes the perfect activity for a birthday, hen party or just to meet up with your friends. You will finish the session with at least 3 complete leather accessories, knowledge about different types of leather and leather working tools as well as a list of suppliers for tools and materials should you wish to continue your new hobby! As my classes are small I can sometimes be pretty flexible with dates so please get in touch. Maximum 4 people at my Essex studio Class starts at 10am, finishes at 5pm with 45 min lunch break.

What's included in the price?

All materials and tools are provided but please feel free to bring your own if you so wish. Refreshments; tea and coffee are included. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH.

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 Essex studio or larger groups at other venues so email me if you'd like more information.
