About the Course

Join me to make a soft leather bag in a choice of styles and colours - choose your colour when you book. The bags are fully lined with interior pockets. Your tutor is Lizzie. Lizzie has been making soft leather handbags and travel bags for many years and will enjoy teaching new skills to you.

We will make a different bag at each of these workshops. Please see my website for which bag we will make on which date.

The workshop runs from 9.30am - 4.30pm, but if you have some distance to travel I can be flexible on the start time.

I have just done this course on the 24th March, it was fabulous. I made a beautiful fully lined zipped shoulder bag. On the day you get all the help and tuition you need to complete the bag so you take it home completed and ready to use. Marian and Lizzie are so lovely nothing is too much trouble for them, they have great skills and knowledge which they pass on to you as you need them. The courses are small so you are guaranteed to get the help you need without feeling out of your depth. If you have done some machine sewing it helps, but its not a problem if you haven't. The cake and lunch were scrumptious too. It was a fantastic way to spend a Saturday and what an achievement to have a hand made bag that you have made!!! I highly recommend this course and I would do it again to make a different bag.
