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.

Lindsey reviewed: Make a leather belt in a day - Craft it Yourself Practical Leather Course

"The belt-making workshop was great fun and a good, accessible introduction to leatherwork. Georgie was a friendly teacher and divided time well between everyone on the course so that we could learn all of the steps in the time. Was also interesting to hear about Georgie's work as we made our belts."

Hands of Tym responded:

" Thanks Lindsey it was great to meet you and your belt was brilliant 🤩"
