About Wolfram Lohr
Wolfram Lohr, has been working with leather for over 20 years after initially learning shoemaking with various shoemakers in Brighton. He branched out to create an accessories range of luxury handmade leather goods soon after seeing a need for good quality, long lasting and stylish products for his customers. He now runs his successful brand and courses from his well-equipped and eclectic studio in Hove. Wolfram is bursting with passion for his craftsmanship and uses it along with his expertise and extensive knowledge of leather to teach courses in making different artisan leather goods. He takes great pleasure in sharing his craft with his students and he finds it enriches his own design process as well as others.
Our aim is for students, of all abilities, to feel inspired by traditional leather craft and to master simple techniques to equip them with the skills to create their own designs for personal or professional use.
