Stamping, embossing & wet-moulding leather

My wife and I were given two places on the course as a gift - we both absolutely loved the course!!

Wendy & Clive were both extremely welcoming and the atmosphere for the class was relaxed. The class was well paced and structured brilliantly so even as complete beginners, you could make progress quickly.

Would highly recommend (and we’ve already recommended it to friends).

Proper tea, great biscuits and some of the best views around from the workshop are an added bonus ;-).

Leather possibles pouch workshop

I'd highly recommend this course, absolutely fantastic. Both Wendy and Clive were super helpful and very patient with our onslaught of questions, which they always had an answer for! I've done craft work in the past and meddled with leather before but I still learned a vast amount of new skills and got an opportunity to try new tools I'd not be able to without investing in them myself. Worth every penny!

Introduction to leatherwork – belt making workshop

5 stars are not enough! Wendy and Clive are fantastic tutors, the knowledge and skill they past on during this course was brilliant. I'm a complete novice in leather work, yet came away with a belt that looks amazing, looking forward to making more. The beautiful surroundings also helped make this a memorable day. Would definitely recommend, and look forward to booking more courses with them. Thank you for such a great day,

Introduction to leatherwork – belt making workshop

Can’t rate the course high enough, excellent learning environment, relaxed and friendly.

I learned so many skills and techniques more easily than I thought, instructed perfectly and produced something amazing, testimony in itself to the teaching style and ability of a Wendy and Clive.

Has left me eager and excited to continue learning leatherwork and practicing myself.

Incredible, thank you.

Introduction to leatherwork – belt making workshop

Wonderful learning experience in a great workroom with glorious views led by really good tutors in a very friendly environment. What more could you want? By the end I felt confident in the skills required and had a really good quality belt to show off.

Leather bag workshop - two day Evancliffe Leathercraft workshop

I thoroughly enjoyed my two day bag making course. It was a completely different approach from my recent course in Florence and feel it really rounded out my skills. Clive and Wendy are a great team, and run the course with skill and patience, keeping a close eye on us as we acquired and practiced new techniques. I would highly recommend it, and the setting, overlooking the North Pennines is amazing

Excellent tuition in a lovely setting. Clive and Wendy are tireless in their support, making sure you are comfortable with your work- very positive. I had no experience at all, but came away with something I feel proud of.

Wire wrapped jewellery workshop

Wendy and Clive are a lovely couple who greeted us with a warm welcome. The venue, their beautiful house, was just as warm and welcoming and I cannot express just how fantastic the course was. Wendy models techniques so clearly that you feel like you could master anything by the end of it. I loved it and can’t wait to sign up to the next Christmas course. Thank-you for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon!

Absolutely loved this course....
Great tuition given in a friendly fun way with a lovely range of craft materials to use and choose from. Refreshments given throughout to keep us going and a lovely group environment for relaxed chat and sharing of ideas and creation.
Would happily give a 5 * recommendation and was only sorry that it came to an end all too quickly.
Thank you Wendy and Clive. :) x

Stamping, embossing & wet-moulding leather

Attended this course with my 11 and 16yr old daughters - they absolutely loved it.
It was about a month / six weeks ago we did the course and still they are proudly showing off what they did to anyone who will look at it and telling me I must arrange days like this one.

Leather bag workshop - two day Evancliffe Leathercraft workshop

This course was amazing. I was a complete beginner and achieved a beautiful bag under expert guidance.
Wendy and Clive, have such good knowledge and really instil confidence.
The spacious work room has a stunning view, and coupled with the peace and tranquility, you come away feeling renewed and rewarded.
I can not recommend this course enough, you will learn so many new skills, meet interesting people.
The biscuits and coffee are good too.

Thank you for your review. We are really pleased you enjoyed tbe belt workshop.

You could try our one day pouch workshop to make a pouch to hang from your new belt. We also offer atwo day bag workshop or if you want to let your artistic talents show our half day stamping, embossing & wet moulding workshop is good fun and we think good value for money!

Leather bag workshop - two day Evancliffe Leathercraft workshop

I spent a thorougly enjoyable two days making a leather handbag from scratch. This is now going to be my every day bag and I will be using it with pride.

The tuition was excellent. Both tutors are very experienced leather workers. We were guided through every aspect of the process of making our bags and using the various tools. Through demonstration, gentle advice and lots of encouragement we all produced a very professional-looking bag.

I recommend this course very highly
