Vajira was really friendly and helpful.My husband and i are novices and learnt a lot in the half day workshop. Vajira was patient and allowed us to experiment.
We'd recommend the workshop to anyone wanting to get to groups with leather making and for those wanting to make a personal gift for friends and family.
Thanks Vajira.
Danielle and Jamie.

Thanks for coming to do the workshop and it was lovely to have you. I hope you both made the rest of accessories you took the patterns with you. Looking forward to see the small gifts you make.

Such a great insight in to the many skilled used to make leather accessories. Vajira was very welcoming and patience. I look forward to trying out some of my new skills at home.

Really great class! I now know how to cut, make holes, stitch and add fasteners. Lovely tutor - now going to have to make some pencil cases for my grandchildren!

Great to understand the basics, specific tools and now I know how to saddlestich. We should be able to use the techniques and patterns for lots of things. We have a lot of leather to use. Our tutor was very clear and patient with us and we have patterns to follow to make glasses cases, pen holders and luggage tags.

I would recommend this knowledge packed course for anyone wanting to learn how to work in leather.

A very enjoyable morning. Vajira was keen to model and demonstrate her techniques. I have made 2 bracelets, a purse, a key ring and a trinket box.
Thank you very much

A great way to spend a half a day learning basics of leather accessory making. Vajira is very knowledgeable and very flexible. The course provide all the tools, materials and patterns you need so I only just have to go and learn how to make small accessories. In the end you can have 4 small accessories made. It's so satisfying!!
Quick response and worth for money as you will have knowledge and accessories made in the end.
Definitely recommend this course.
