Thoroughly enjoyed my workshop and love the bag we made. Great teacher and so easy to chat to. So glad she had some spare reading glasses too as I realised I’d left mine at home! Cathy had some great suggestions and clearly has a great eye for detail. I’d love to come back and make something else! Will be recommending the course to all of my creative friends 😊

Response from Catherine Edwards Leather:

Aah, well you were easy and lovely to teach, so thankyou too!

Great first experience of leather workshop.
The workshop was designed to experience various tools & techniques.
Cathy was extremely patient & kind and guided me to compete my luggage label project.
*The welcome committee, Jess & Jupiter is an additional lovely element to the class.

Response from Catherine Edwards Leather:

Zi,

We (Jess, Jupiter and Myself ;-) ) loved having you.

Well done with your excellent attention to detail and joy of being creative.

This course was amazing! It was a great introduction to working with leather - all the tools were so interesting. I got lots of support and made a collar (with tag) and lead for my lurcher, both are gorgeous, made of lovely soft leather and ended up looking really professional. I was blown away by how talented and knowledgeable Cathy is. I could have just watched her make things for hours!! The time with Cathy was super relaxed and fun and she even had a puppy I got to stroke! Can’t thank her enough for opening up her studio to me.

Response from Catherine Edwards Leather:

Aww Anna, you've made my day!
Thankyou for being such a lovely student!

What a great day! So much so, all the people on the course have re-booked. Cathy's patience and wealth of knowledge make for a really pleasant and creative environment. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in getting some hands-on experience. Well worth it!

Brilliant day. Cathy Edwards is a great teacher, very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable. We left with a jacket for a journal and a clutch bag, both made with our own fair hands. Never knew we had it in us. Definitely recommend this workshop for anyone interested in leatherwork or craft courses in general.
