This course can be done online or one to one at my workshop. Tools provided at my workshop or I can advise you where to buy your own.

Sessions can be booked in 4 and 8 hour blocks but can then be broken down into bite sized two hour sessions.
This helps with dealing with specific issues, time to practice and a revisit in the next session before progressing.
Whilst you can have whichever suits you best, this structure has proved the most successful so far.

On this course you will learn the basic techniques such as cutting out from a template, traditional method of sewing leather - saddlemaker's stitch. Please indicate which design you would like to make when enquiring about booking courses. No bookings will be confirmed until a deposit has been made or payment made in full.

What's included in the price?

Includes all materials and tools. Bring your own packed lunch. Tea/coffee supplied.

Want to review this course?

Have been wanting to make my own leather bag - great to see the pieces fit together but a lot of work - took 2 days to complete but well worth the effort. Stuart is patient and encouraging and showed me more techniques which I had not learned on previous courses. Highly recommended.


Handmade knife sheath for my favourite blade - quite intricate but got the hang of it with practice on the stitching. Great day, ace tutor. Highly recommended.


Wonderful to be able to put the pieces together and make such a fab product. Great tutor, brilliant day. Highly recommended.


A lot more work than I imagined - especially the stitching! However practice makes perfect and it all came together eventually - great result. Highly recommended.


From start to finish a really enjoyable day - seeing the end product emerge from pieces of leather is great. Thoroughly recommend this experience.
