"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."

Steve Mills reviewed: 1-2-1 Practical Leather Tuition & Consultancy with Georgie Tym

"I spent a day with Georgie last week and found it enormously enjoyable and useful. I have some skills (cutting and hand-stitching) and have made a number of small leather items (belts, book covers and so on). I told Georgie in advance of the course that I wanted to move on to making bags as well as refreshing a number of important basic skills. She tailored the day very well for me, covering all of the issues I wanted to address. I was able to develop basic skills on the leather sewing machine and to construct a backpack using leather I had taken along. The bag has been a massive hit with my wife and a real boost to my cred as a maker in leather! Georgie was great fun to work with too - generous with her time and her skills. I heartily recommend!!"

Hands of Tym responded:

" It was great to meet you Steve and lovely to spend time working on your bag with you - it was expertly crafted! Thanks for the kind words, best wishes Georgie"

Ruth reviewed: DIY Leather Bag Kit - Cross Body Satchel to make at home

"I absolutely loved making this satchel bag! From start to finish everything was fabulous. The way Georgie packs the kits up is gorgeous, so it would make a beautiful gift for a crafty friend. The materials are very high quality, as are the instructions. You get both written instructions and a video, and the thing I found best of all is that Georgie is super helpful if you have questions during the process. Highly recommended from me!"

There were so many leathers to choose from which ensures every bag is unique. Using a variety of tools, machinery and techniques. George is a friendly, experienced and knowledgeable tutor. Definitely will return another time."

Sue Thompson reviewed: 'Bag in a Day' Practical Leather Course - Rucksack/ Backpack

"I’ve tried several crafts and usually my initial effort is consigned to a “could do better” drawer and never seen again: but not this time. I am amazed at the quality of the bag I made, and everyone who has seen it has been pretty impressed, (maybe a few too many incredulous “you made that??” comments). Georgie is an excellent tutor with so much expertise and endless patience, and she made the day so relaxed and so much fun. I would highly recommend – I am going back to make another!"

Alexander MacLellan reviewed: 'Bag in a Day' Practical Leather Course - Rucksack/ Backpack

"I did this course back in December in time to make a bag for my wife for Christmas and it was brilliant! Under Georgie's expert tutelage I was able to make something that will last my wife a lifetime, I was also able to choose different colours and types of leather. My other half is thrilled with it and at first she didn't believe me when I said I'd made it. I can't recommend this course enough. It was a lovely atmosphere to learn a new skill in as well."

Hands of Tym responded:

" Thanks Alex and I am so happy to hear she loved it!"

My bag is stunning and everything was explained perfectly from start to finish! It was such a lovely, relaxed day with lots of giggles and a brilliant finished product. The food was fab too!! Would love to come back again!"

paul porter reviewed: Pattern Cutting for Bags and Introduction to Leather craft - Designing Bags in 3D (1 week course)

"Wanting to design and make bags, but with no previous experience, this seemed the perfect course - i was not wrong. Georgie is an extremely gifted teacher, spending time explain different build techniques, but also backing this up with examples she has made. There was lots of time to ask questions about materials and best practice for items i had in mind to make. The 5 days seemed to pass very quickly, but i have mockups, notes and just as importantly supplier lists to help me in the future, as well as Georgie an email away. Thank you"

Hands of Tym responded:

" Thanks very much Paul for your kind words. I am so glad you found it helpful!"
