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 ;-)
