I had a great day learning about leathercraft. The purse was simple but excellent for beginners. I learnt to use many new tools and new techniques in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Deborette is an excellent teacher and very patient. The pace was good and nothing seemed rushed. I went away knowing that I could tackle simple leathercraft projects and from there build up my knowledge of this craft.
A great Christmas gift from my brother in law. My sister, my niece and I had a fantastic day last Sunday making leather tote bags. With so much choice of colours/styles of leather we were really spoilt for choice and took our time choosing our personal favourites. The day flew by as we cut out our pieces, glued, then sewed the bits together (having practiced our skills on the different sewing machines).
Deborette was a wonderful tutor, putting us all at ease and helping whenever and wherever needed, as well as providing plenty of drinks, biscuits and lunch. The finished products all looked very professional, and are all obviously unique. I know I would like to go back and make another one, and would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of taking part.
I attended the making a tote bag. I had a wonderful day. There was a plenty of different types of leather to choose from. Deborette explained what to do, step by step, provided templates and adapted them as I wanted to slightly change the design. I can sew but haven't had experience on an industrial machine, Deborette answered all my questions and allowed us as much freedom to adapt the basic design as we wanted. There were only 4 of us so we had plenty of attention when we needed it. I would thoroughly recommend this course to my friends..and have! I have used my bag and had lots of compliments. I will definitely do another course with her. Great value for money and I left with a fab bag.
