About the Course

Learn how create and craft your very own personalised leather laptop case at my Surrey studio.

Make the laptop case from veg-tanned leather using the traditional leatherwork technique of saddle stitching. Firstly, you will learn to make your own pattern to fit your specific laptop. You will then prepare the leather for cutting and learn the art of traditional leatherwork by saddle stitching, gluing and finishing the edges by burnishing and/or painting them. There is a choice of tan or dark brown leather, coloured threads and two different fastenings to use for your closure. You may finish off your case by personalising it with embossing your name/initials with a letter stamping set.

Maximum of 4 per class

What a wonderful introduction to something I had never done before and in such a nice setting. Rosanna offers teaching with such care and clear knowledge of the subject of ‘work with leather’ that the time seems to fly by and I when home with my completed laptop case knowing I had spent a very enjoyable few hours. I would recommend this course and teacher to everyone.

My husband gave me this class as my birthday pressie, it was brill I made a hand stitched laptop case. This was my first attempt at leather work and it turned out fab (even if I do say so myself). Rosanna was a very good tutor and let your own flare come out in what you make.

We had a lovely lunch in a lovely garden, so all in all a perfect day. I have already booked leather day number two for next month.

Thanks so much Rosanna see you soon.

I had a fabulous day making the leather laptop case with Rosanna in her workshop in Kent. Beautiful surroundings for a great and informative day. Rosanna is a great teacher; very patient and a very talented maker. I learnt a number of essential leather stitching techniques as well as many finishing techniques such as embossing and edging to make my final piece look stunning. I love my laptop case and I cannot wait to try out my newly learnt skills again. A highly recommended and fun day! She makes a mean quiche too ;-)
