Stamping, embossing & wet-moulding leather

In-person course
- - #29704

I would like to thank Wendy and Clive for the recent wet moulding course I attended, leather work courses are few and far between and it was a shame only two people turned up for this course as although only a half day course there is still enough time to cover different aspects, and come away with some quality items, it's a very enjoyable old craft, and a lot can be learned from a hands on course, I hope to make the journey for more of their courses in the future

Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:

Thank you for the review. It was a shame that the course was not full, however we are currently in challenging and strange times. The afternoon workshop was full and we actually put on an extra workshop in the evening for two health workers looking to do something crafty. We were very pleased to help out there, that is for sure.

We have currently postponed our next workshop (Hand Bound Jouirnal) and will advise on other workshops in line with the advice we are being given nearer to their scheduled date. Any bookings made will be transferable to another workshop. We do expect high demand once this is over. So if you like thelook of something, just book it safe in the knowledge that if we have to postpone we will simply move the booking to a later date and anyone already booked will be first in the queue.

Keep enjoying your leatherwork and it was great to see the photos you have posted on our facebook page!

Leather possibles pouch workshop

In-person course
- - #28250

I would like to thank Wendy and Clive for the pouch making course I attended recently, it was a great introduction as a beginner to leatherwork with a lot of processes and techniques covered, saddle stitching, dyeing, riveting etc , and good practice with a variety of tools.
I learned a lot in a short space of time, and feel more confident to continue with my own leatherwork projects, and would recommend the course to anyone that's looking to get into working with leather

Introduction to leatherwork – belt making workshop

In-person course
- - #27835

I’ve had such a good day and learnt so much from Wendy and Clive, who were great hosts and excellent instructors. The atmosphere was very relaxed and everyone was given one to one instruction when required and plenty of time to complete their belt. I can’t believe what we achieved and now have the bug to do another course. Thank you again

Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:

One of the best workshops I’ve attended. Professional teaching, delivered in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. No pressure, just lots of advice and encouragement. I feel inspired to try my hand at something more challenging. Thanks to Clive & Wendy for a very enjoyable day.

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 ;-).

Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:

Thank you for our 50th five star review! Great to hear that you both enjoyed the workshop, tea and view!

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!

Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:

Thank you for the review. Great to hear you enjoyed the workshop and learnt new skills even having had some leatherwork experience before.

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,

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.

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.
I recommend this course wholeheartedly.

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

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.

Response from Evancliffe Leathercraft:

We are really pleased that you all enjoyed the workshop and thank you for the review.

Great to hear the work is still being shown off!
