About Hands of Tym

During training at Cordwainers, London College of Fashion in 2010 I learnt how to design, make and manufacture bags professionally. Following a varied career in Accessories design and development across many roles and international brands I set up Hands of Tym in 2016. The courses I offer are suitable for all, from experienced to total novice. Come along to learn something new, and design and make your own leather bag in a day.

'Bag in a Day' Practical Leather Course - Mini Bucket bag

In-person course
Kathy Taylor - - #15070

An excellent day’s course with a superb result. I loved the mini bucket bag day workshop that I’ve also done the tote bag in a day!
Georgie makes sure you succeed regardless of experience from basic cutting out through design of “extras” to finishing.
Absolutely loved it!!

I did this course a few months ago and I absolutely loved it. Georgie's guidance is warm and accurate and takes you through all the steps to make your bag. You are given plenty of room to apply your creativity and personality which I really enjoyed. I more than recommend this course if you want to learn about leather and would do it again without hesitation. Thank you Georgie!

I did this course last year and absolutely loves it. A few of my friends have done it since and loved it too. Georgie helped me make such a lovely bag. I love it more and more everyday as it improves with age. Thoroughly recommended this course. The food was great and the venue lovely! You will not be disappointed.

I had a brilliant time making a bag. I didn’t know I could produce such a professional product without previous experience. The instructor was very clear and helpful, yet there was plenty of room to personalise my bag. The day just flowed very naturally and easily yet it was packed full of creative information about the trade. I highly recommend it. Beautiful experience all together.
