Had a fantastic day with the very talented Christina and two other lovely ladies booked onto the course.
The course was brilliant, really informative and a relaxed friendly atmosphere.I had never tried leatherwork before but definitely want to do more, the collar and lead I came away with were top quality and well worth making.
I would love to attend another one of Christina's courses in the near future and would thoroughly recommend one to anyone else.

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.
