Sarah KR reviewed: Introduction to small goods leather crafting

"Paul is an extremely knowledgable leather worker, with lots of experience and many amazing tips !. It was a thoroughly enjoyable course and Paul showed us all the processes involved with kindness and patience. Our finished leather notebooks were amazing and this is all down to the wonderful tutor. I would definitely recommend this course to any one who wants to start working on leather. His course handout was also superb - with links off where to go to get certain tools and he also reminded us on the handout what each tool was for! . 10/10 course ."

"A fantastic course! Wonderful venue, friendly staff, and great teacher. Paul is so enthusiastic about leather making, it oozes from him. The day went so quickly! We learnt so much and our finished items were beyond all expectations. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this class to anyone interested in learning how to make leather goods. Paul went above and beyond in every way...an exceptional teacher. It was excellent value too. We will definitely be returning to learn more. Thank you Paul for a great day...Tony & Beverley "
