About the Course

My name is Mark Rowney and I have been tooling, carving and designing with leather for 30 years. I have worked with top fashion designers as well as creating high quality commission work.

My one day courses focus on the tooling, carving and colouring of leather objet d' art. Our students will have a varied choice of items to work on that include, journals, belts, frames, trinket trays to name but a few. All our attendees will discover their own creative side producing work that will astound their families and friends.

'The Hide' is situated in the high meadows of upper Weardale in the Durham Dales. With inspirational views and a purpose built workshop, students are guaranteed an unforgettable experience.

The day starts with coffee and an outline of the day. The lesson starts in earnest at 10am and your masterpieces are completed by 4.30pm.
