Attended this course with my 11 and 16yr old daughters - they absolutely loved it.
It was about a month / six weeks ago we did the course and still they are proudly showing off what they did to anyone who will look at it and telling me I must arrange days like this one.

Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:

We are really pleased that you all enjoyed the workshop and thank you for the review.

Great to hear the work is still being shown off!


I had a great time at the course arranged by my local craft group. I learnt lots and , as we given a choice of projects, learnt to stitch as well as embossing and dyeing. Clive and Wendy were great teachers, clear and supportive while always giving you the space to do it yourself. They have lots of equipment to give a professional finish. I would recommend this course and you certainly do not need to be particularly arty or crafty.

My husband and I enjoyed this course hugely! We learned so much during the session and were delighted by the things we made. Both bowls are being used regularly and have received several compliments!
