I did the Sneakers workshop with Eli. The results were amazing and I get comments on them every time I wear them. Don't be daunted , Eli is there every step of the way to ensure you get a fantastic result, cannot reccommend this highly enough.

It was such a fun & creative experience making a sadlebag. Eli is a great teacher & it was a wonderful opportunity to learn to use specialist leatherwork equipment. The finished bag looks lovely & has been much admired by my friends and colleagues! I will definitely be returning to do another course with Eli soon, as I do fancy making a pair of bespoke leather trainers!

Response from Love and Salvage:

Thanks Justine! You made a fabulous bag too - I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the sneakers. XX see you soon.

It was an excellent day. I had the option of making a bucket bag or a saddle bag and choose to make a saddle bag. There were 3 of us on course all making different things and Ellie was really helpful,moving between us. I really enjoyed learning something new and I'm delighted with my finished bag.

Response from Love and Salvage:

It was lovely to have you!
Please come again and make whatever you want xxx

I had such a great time making my bag with Eli, she was so lovely and accommodating, and I have learnt so many great skills. Not only that but I have come away with my new favourite handbag - AND I MADE IT!! I love her ethos and to know everything is reclaimed is even better! If you've ever wanted to try something new, and make something super special, this is such a great idea!

Thanks again, I have been using my bag everyday since!!
