About Armitage Leather

Nigel has been a bespoke maker for thirty years focusing on the longstanding traditions of making leather goods completely by hand. Six years ago, after many requests, Nigel began teaching one to one classes passing on these techniques.
Today, Nigel can now be found sharing his skills offering both individual and group courses in his Midlands based workshop which has been specifically designed to offer the best learning experience.
