This is an excellent course in a fantastic setting.
Christina is clearly an extremely talented and knowledgeable tutor.
I went from somebody who has never sewn a thing and with zero leather craft experience to coming away with what I consider a quality dog lead and collar in a day. All for probably the same it would cost to buy a mass produced one in a shop but with the satisfaction of having made it and picking up a lot of new skills.
The facilities provided and the lunch were top quality.
I would happily look to book further courses with Christina.
