"An excellent course. Run by a highly experienced instructor, who imparts his own high standard of workmanship onto the student during the session. With practical demonstrations and theory to aid in underpinning the learning process. Working with the student, Nigel quickly evaluates the student's skill level and works to improve it. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in leather craft."
"I had a one day basic introduction to leather crafting lesson with Nigel. It was given to me as a gift, and I wasn't sure how it would go! Well, I surprised myself! It seems I had a flair for stitching, and did very well indeed. The teaching was great, pitched at the right level for my skill. Nigel guided me through the process, watching me all the time, yet not hovering over me, worried I might do it wrong or hurt myself with the tools.
The tools were awesome, and did most of the job for me. The workshop is busy and interesting, so many wonderful pieces of leather work to look at, and the overall smell of leather intoxicating.
I came away from the day very confident that I could do it again, and with a deep respect for a wonderful craft and gifted craftsman. Not to mention the shakes from too much caffeine!
Thanks Nigel, awesome lesson."
