Excellent informative course, Christina is a fabulous, talented teacher, would highly recommend. Never worked with leather before and now thanks to Christina feel confident introducing leather in my dog collar designs.
Thanks for a great day.
It was an excellent course and Christina was very informative and friendly.
This was our first time working with leather and we now feel confident to start using leather in our projects.
I had a great day with Christina who was more than happy to help me increase my limited knowledge of leatherwork. A very informal and relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful setting. I would highly recommend one of Christina's courses. I will be putting my new skills into practice.
Response from Christina:Thank you was a pleasure
Had a fantastic day with the very talented Christina and two other lovely ladies booked onto the course.
The course was brilliant, really informative and a relaxed friendly atmosphere.I had never tried leatherwork before but definitely want to do more, the collar and lead I came away with were top quality and well worth making.
I would love to attend another one of Christina's courses in the near future and would thoroughly recommend one to anyone else.
This is an excellent course in a fantastic setting.
Christina is clearly an extremely talented and knowledgeable tutor.
I went from somebody who has never sewn a thing and with zero leather craft experience to coming away with what I consider a quality dog lead and collar in a day. All for probably the same it would cost to buy a mass produced one in a shop but with the satisfaction of having made it and picking up a lot of new skills.
The facilities provided and the lunch were top quality.
I would happily look to book further courses with Christina.
