I did the course with Vajira in Nottingham. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Left with the knowledge I came all the way from Cape Town for. Vajira is lovely and patient.
On the down side... we were not offered light lunch, tea and cake ;-p (kidding).
I have no hesitation recommending this course.

We had 3 great days. Vajira is an excellent teacher and learned us all techniques about gloves and mittens. It is so fun to make gloves and they fit very well because during the proces it is possible to messure them on your own size. We are bagmakers from the Netherlands and are experienced with leather. But still we learned a lot.

Great course with so much information you get about glove making. Vajira is a great teacher and explains everything so well and you can ask any question. She provides everything including patterns etc and describe and demonstrate very clearly. Also work according to students need. There aren't many glove making workshops across UK and this one is the best if you like to learn how to make gloves. It so therapeutic and you learn so much about glove making. Vajira is very friendly and has a great knowledge about glove making. I will definitely recommend this course to anyone who would love to make gloves. Definitely worth the money I spent on this course.

This was an excellent course as I learnt so much about glove making and my from experience have discovered that leather glove making courses are hard to find. Vajira was very helpful, friendly, patient and very knowledgeable about leather glove making. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone who wants to learn how to make leather gloves.
