Leatherwork weekend taster course

In-person course
- - #20638

Fantastic weekend,

I spent the weekend making a small pouch and then additionally a small knife sheath. Gaynor was fantastic in her instruction and helped me with understanding what I could reasonably achieve within my time at the workshop. Since then I have become an armature leather worker and I still follow her advice every project.

A fantastic and hugely enjoyable weekend. Gaynor, Elizabeth and Hannah guided us through all the processes with clear instructions, endless patience and always a smile. The setting, wonderful log burner and of course, the cakes all added to the experience. The final product was a beautiful leather satchel, much admired already....
Thank you again.

Thankyou to Gaynor & the team for a wonderful weekend of bag making fun. I had no previous experience of leather work but now am the proud owner of a beautiful leather satchel all hand made by me!
This is an amazing course, set in a beautiful workshop and run by a fabulous team who encourage and guide you through every step of the process. A highly recommended course.

Fantastic course and I am so pleased with the bag. Gaynor and team made learning and making easy and fun. With clear instructions, gentle guidance and many patient reminders I made a beautiful Tote bag which has turned out exactly as I hoped. The workshop is so well equipped and the team were very skilled. And then there were the lovely cakes....

Recommend the course to anyone who wants to have a go- they make it so easy no experience needed!

Thank you to all the team.

I had a great time on the weekend bag making course. It was fun, very well organised and the teaching was excellent. I was amazed that I had made a beautiful leather handbag at the end of the two days. I would highly recommend the course.

What a fantastic way to spend a weekend! The course was amazing with all materials and tools provided and you end with a fabulous leather bag. I was so impressed with the Gaynor and the girls who so helpful and provided good, clear instruction and provided almost one to one teaching. The afternoon tea and cakes were a delight and I met some lovely people. I can honestly recommend this course, you will thoroughly enjoy it and come away with a beautiful bag that you made!

I had a really enjoyable weekend on this course, the atmosphere was great fun and very relaxed but with excellent tuition from Gaynor, Hannah + Elizabeth. It was a great introduction to leatherwork and I learnt a lot in two days and have a lovely bag. I'm hoping to return for another course next year.

Another brilliantly enjoyable course from Gaynor and her team. The workshop is well set out giving each person plenty of space to work with all the tools they need immediately to hand. The tuition is clear and responsive to the level and skill of each person. As always good humour is in plentiful supply too! I thoroughly recommend anyone thinking about doing a course - just go ahead and book! You will have a great time and produce something beautiful to be proud of. Thank you gals!

I would highly recomend this course, firstly the setting was sooo beautiful. The instructors were so lovely and knowledgeable, I learned lots of skills including how to mould, cut and dye leather to make a mask I was really pleased with. I was also given worksheets and lots of advice on how I could easily repeat what I had learnt at home, and was able to buy all the tools and leather I needed too. Cant wait to do another course there again soon.

Sorry for not responding earlier Gaynor, but I have been away.

I really enjoyed the course and in wonderful surroundings. The tutors were great and the other trainees were lovely.

With the help of the trainers I made a lovely bag which I will give to my mother for Mothers Day.

Many thanks - the weekend was excellent.

Best wishes

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Gaynor, Enya and Elizabeth were constantly on hand to guide us through every step of the way. I am really pleased with my messenger bag, so much so that it has become my everyday bag.

You truly are very talented.
See you soon.
