Maker's bio

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.

Eleanor Cole reviewed: 'Bag in a Day' Practical Leather Course - Rucksack/ Backpack

"We had a really lovely day. Together with two friends we spent the day learning about leather and bag making while creating our very own, unique bags which will last forever. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop for anyone interested in learning about bag making and wanting to create their own unique piece. "

Hands of Tym responded:

" Thank you for your kind words, I loved the day with you all and the bags you made were just brilliant. I hope you enjoy them for years to come! "

Carrie Snaith reviewed: 'Bag in a Day' Practical Leather Course - Tote Bag

"Had the best day ever learning how to make a leather tote bag with Georgie I would highly recommended this class to anyone who wants to learn how to make bags. Georgie is an excellent teacher and so patient in teaching the class. I use my bag everyday and love telling people I made it myself it’s my proudest make so far in my sewing journey. I learned so much and had the best day, already started bag pattern shopping to make more. Thank you so much 😀"

Hands of Tym responded:

" Hey Carrie, I am so happy to hear you had such a great day! It was brilliant to spend the day with you and your bag is fantastic, lovely to meet you and thanks for coming xxx"

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

"Did this course yesterday and came home with a fantastic, professional looking bag. A huge amount of work is involved in the making of these bags, we were taught every aspect and guided to produce a bag to be proud of. If you want to try a creative course that is really quite different, try this."

Hands of Tym responded:

" Thank you so much Judy, it was so lovely to welcome you to the workshop and a share a day with you. Your bag is stunning 😍 xxx"
