This is an excellent workshop - both fun and informative. Sarah is encouraging and nothing is too much trouble. She guides you through the process every step of the way in her beautiful studio and just seeing the work she produces and the wonderful coloured leather is inspiring. I came away with a fantastic two coloured business card case which has been well used and gathered many compliments.
I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone whatever your ability - you will have fun in beautiful surroundings whilst gaining a new skill from an amazing practitioner

I attended the two taster leather course and would give it a 10 out of 10! Sarah was really patient and taught us at the right pace for everyone. I couldn't think of anyway in which this course could be improved. I had a wonderful morning and feel like I have found my "thing". Thank You!

I did a dog collar and lead course with 2 friends as a birthday treat for them both. It was during art week. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to do more of Sarah's courses in the future.

I had a wonderful time learning a new skill in the old school workshop, Sarah explained everything slowly and in an easy to understand manner which mean't that it was easy to retain.
The building was a beautiful old school with a modern clean airy feel and lots of space.
I would recommend the course and Sarah as a tutor to anyone wishing to pick a new skill in leather-work.
Also a big plus is, i came away with a nice hand made coin holder.

Thank you Sarah great course..
