About the Course

This course provides a great opportunity to learn the difficult techniques and processes of glove making. Learn to stitch a glove. You will get the glove already cut and prepared to stitch and finish. You will be able to design the glove as you required. This course is popular in UK and abroad as well. We had many local and international students travel to UK specially to participate in this course.

Starting from selecting leather, stretching, cutting to final finishing, you will learn the whole process of glove making, including the special tools you need.

Groups of 4 max £1200 per group
By the end of this course you will have:

- explored leather manipulating techniques, pattern making for gloves, leather cutting skills and stitching skills
- explored measuring techniques for glove making
- explored basic hand stitching techniques and advanced finishing techniques.

Prior skills in glove making are not needed to participate in this course as you will learn all the processes and techniques. Perfect for beginners as well as experienced. It would be useful to have some stitching and pattern making skills, though this is not essentials as the basics will be taught.
I'm flexible in location and run workshops across UK in many locations on request.

I took the Glove making course and it was lovely. This is a lost art, and Vajira seems to really love teaching it. Had a nice time overall, pleasant conversations, and managed to make the gloves I wanted. I recommend this workshop to whoever likes craftsmanship:)

Response from Peiris Designs:

Hi Lali,
Thanks for your review. It was lovely to have you in our workshop. You have amazing designs and ideas to make. Looking forward to see some more glove you make in future.
Many thanks!

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.
