The course is really enjoyable and the end-product is amazing. Cathy was a very patient and helpful teacher and made the experience really fun.
Response from Creative with Nature:Thanks so much for your review Owen. Really glad you enjoyed the day!
Absolutely loved the 2 day bag making course. Cathy lets people go at their own pace as and when needed. She is excellent at sharing her knowledge and giving hints and tips as you go along. My relatives are really impressed with my bag and it will last for years and years. I've always been a craft person and this has opened up my world being able to use leather work techniques on different fabrics and papers.

Wonderful working with Cathy on the apron and signed up to make a satchel too. Everything well organised and explained
I did the apron course and completely impressed myself even with some hand stitching. Cathy was brilliant and very helpful - has a lot of experience and patience. I have signed up to the leather satchel weekend in July.
