Maker's bio

Hello, my name is Jason Stocks-Young, founder and owner of Diamond Awl Leather Workshop. My studio is on the edge of the Pennines, where the leather workshops take place. I started making leather goods 8 years ago, learning from an old saddle maker using traditional leatherwork techniques. I share my passion for his craft through teaching others and recently featured in the BBC2 TV series Made in Great Britain, a celebration and exploration of our manufacturing heritage.

Natalie Redmond reviewed: One day leather work course - small leather goods

"My friend and I did this 1-day course yesterday and we absolutely loved it. Jason is knowledgeable, friendly, straight-talking and has excellent choice in music!!! 😜 We each made a lovely (if I do say so myself) passport holder and learnt soooo much. I was very proud of the end result and kind of want to repeat the day so I can do it better, now that I've learned more. I loved the stitching the best!!!! "
