"The course didn't disappoint in any way. A friendly relaxed day spent learning the basics of leathercraft, providing the confidence to learn more and develop further skills. Paul is a font of knowledge and very happy to answer questions and provide guidance and assistance. I'd have no difficulty in recommending the course to family and friends."
"A very enjoyable day.
I learned a great deal in a short time which is testament to a good teacher.
After just 6 hours in a comfortable, friendly and beautiful location, I went home.
Very pleased with my first attempt and rearing to go with my own projects.
Thank you Paul."
"I did this course with Paul last weekend and it was excellent. I have been learning a little bit of leather crafting via YouTube and needed to have some face to face instruction to fix some of the mistakes I’ve been making. Paul was super knowledgeable about leather type and uses and lots for great hints and tips for better technique. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone just starting out."
"I purchased this course as a birthday present for my Dad. Dad said it was a very enjoyable experience and that Paul was marvellous at imparting his knowledge and passion for leather-craft, whether that be to a beginner or someone with more knowledge. The notebook wallet Dad created was beautiful, as well as functional, and he now feels that he would be up to making similar objects from scratch, using the techniques he acquired from Paul at the course."
