We thoroughly enjoyed our day. We are in no way crafty and we were a bit worried beforehand that this course would be a bit beyond us, but the instructors made it easy to follow. They were happy to let you crack on and do things for yourself, but always on hand to give you extra help if needed. You got to cut out the leather, dye it and stitch it, as well as using various tools. Clive and Wendy were really nice and so enthusiastic about all things leather. We are so chuffed with the pouches we made. Couldn't recommend this course enough. Excellent value for money too!
Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:Thank you for leaving this review, it is greatly appreciated. We are pleased you both enjoyed the workshop and are chuffed with your pouches.
Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop, thrilled with my finished pouch.
Wendy and Clive are excellent tutors - friendly, knowledgeable and patient. Small class sizes mean everyone gets attention and individual help if needed. I hope to return and do the bag-making workshop later this year.
An added bonus is the setting - light airy room with lovely views across the countryside. Exceptionally Covid-safe too.
Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:Thank you for leaving this review. We do appreciate reviews a lot! We are so pleased that you enjoyed the workshop and are thrilled with the pouch.
A truly enjoyable and informative course. The instruction was clear and concise. The arrangement of all tools and materials was in such away that it was easy to use.
The instruction by two excellent craftspeople was wonderful and you were treated as a family friend.
I was on this course on 10th Oct 20 and would highly recommend it.
Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:We're really pleased that you enjoyed the workshop. Good luck with your future leatherwork.
I would like to thank Wendy and Clive for the pouch making course I attended recently, it was a great introduction as a beginner to leatherwork with a lot of processes and techniques covered, saddle stitching, dyeing, riveting etc , and good practice with a variety of tools.
I learned a lot in a short space of time, and feel more confident to continue with my own leatherwork projects, and would recommend the course to anyone that's looking to get into working with leather
Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:Thank you for this excellent review.
Because of how much i loved the belt making course, i was back the next weekend to learn how to make a cute pouch! Wendy and Clive taught this so perfectly that if you were a complete beginner you could still keep up whilst having fun, as well as if like me you had some knowledge they would push your skill a bit further and factor in your weakness' to improve them efficiency. I thoroughly enjoyed coming back again, and can assure each visit gets even better !
On this course we got to fully personalise our pouch and im truly proud of mine. Thank you so much again ! Im so happy i joined your leather workshops !
Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:Thank you so much for the review. It is great to get feedback and know that you have enjoyed the workshops so much!
I'd highly recommend this course, absolutely fantastic. Both Wendy and Clive were super helpful and very patient with our onslaught of questions, which they always had an answer for! I've done craft work in the past and meddled with leather before but I still learned a vast amount of new skills and got an opportunity to try new tools I'd not be able to without investing in them myself. Worth every penny!
Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:Thank you for the review. Great to hear you enjoyed the workshop and learnt new skills even having had some leatherwork experience before.
This was a fabulous course! I feel that I have learned far more than ever expected to learn! The tutors were knowledgeable and patient and explained the various elements really well. I am really looking forward to going on another lf their courses in the future!
Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:Thank you so much for the review Joe! It was great to meet you.
