Come along for two full days of making a beautiful leather bag (dates listed are the first of two consecutive days, Friday & Saturday). On the course you will learn about different types of leather and how to select the right type for the right type of bag. Choose from a selection of ready made bag templates, or make/adapt your own. You will also learn how to create a patch pocket and insert a zip. Then finally, how to attach handles to create a one-of-a-kind professionally finished bag. Maximum 2 people at my Essex studio
What's included in the price?
Tools and equipment are provided but students will need to bring their own leather and fixtures or I can provide a package for you at an extra cost. This is usually between £30-40 and charged at the end of the course. Please contact me when booking to discuss your requirements. If you have a leather garment or jacket you would like to upcycle then let me know. Tea, coffee and other light refreshments will be provided on both days. Class starts at 10am, finishes at 5pm with 45 min lunch break. Coffee & tea included but please bring your own lunch.
Easy - Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts
My designs are mainly influenced by geometric shapes and Art Deco design. I've built up a wide range of skills and now have the luxury of time and space to make my own products and to experiment with techniques and styles. Ultimately though, I love passing on my passion for leather craft to other people by running a series of workshops. I cater for both individuals with 1 to 1 tuition and groups at my Surrey studio or larger groups at other venues so email me if you'd like more information.
