I have attended 4 of Catherine's courses now at creative with Nature. As a professional weaver I use leather in some of my work so being able to access these course locally has been brilliant for my development. Cathy is a very patient teacher and I'm really happy with the progress I have made with her.
So far I have made a Leather apron that I wear every day for work, a leather tool roll, a messenger bag and a saddle bag. I'm really looking forward to learning the leather backpack later in 2022

Absolutely loved the 2 day bag making course. Cathy lets people go at their own pace as and when needed. She is excellent at sharing her knowledge and giving hints and tips as you go along. My relatives are really impressed with my bag and it will last for years and years. I've always been a craft person and this has opened up my world being able to use leather work techniques on different fabrics and papers.

Response from Creative with Nature:

Really glad you enjoyed your course Linda. Thanks for coming back. Xxx
