This is a great kit for anyone! Adult or child (12 years plus), male or female. A great gift for Christmas, as a stocking filler or just for yourself if you are quite crafty! The leather comes ready cut to size and the templates can be downloaded once you purchase the kit (if you would like to make it again). All the materials and some tools are included in the kit so if you get the bug you will already have some tools to do some more! You have the choice of 3 different colours of leather (mustard, tan or black) for the cover and 3 colours for the thread (cream, brown or black), just say your choices when you make an order request. * NOTE: If you do not specify colours you will receive a mixture similar to the ones in the photos * Each kit comes with downloadable step by step instructions and a video tutorial so you cannot go wrong! *All the leather is vegetable tanned so will darken slightly with age and use* Please beware these kits are NOT suitable for under 12s due to the use of sharp tools.

My designs are mainly influenced by geometric shapes and Art Deco design. I've built up a wide range of skills and now have the luxury of time and space to make my own products and to experiment with techniques and styles. Ultimately though, I love passing on my passion for leather craft to other people by running a series of workshops. I cater for both individuals with 1 to 1 tuition and groups at my Surrey studio or larger groups at other venues so email me if you'd like more information.
