Beautiful material to work with. High quality kit - really well presented. I'd never worked with leather before but I loved making this. I found it really useful to have the video alongside the written instructions and I'm so proud of the finished rucksack - absolutely gorgeous
Had a fantastic day with Georgie in her studio. Her expert tuition helped me create a bag that I am delighted with. I learned a lot about the construction of bags and a now have a greater understanding of leather. I’m looking forward to making more with Georgie in the future.
Response from Hands of Tym:Thanks Jo, it was great to make bags with you and looking forward to welcoming you back one day.
Spent a day with Georgie to make the tote bag. It was a wonderful day, great facilities and excellent teaching, I learnt new skills and walked away with a professional result that is so worth using and showing off. I would definitely recommend.
Response from Hands of Tym:Thanks Julia, it was great to welcome you to the workshop and your bag is gorgeous! Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, Georgie
Best class I have ever taken for leather.
Very well explained and demonstrated, nothing seems to faze Georgie, even tangled thread! Seriously considering doing it again and making it a group thing. Thanks
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!
Had a great time last week at a the purse making course. On entering the workshop you a hit by a lovely smell of leather. Georgie is a friendly and skilled teacher to guide you through the stages but allowing you the freedom of individual design. And you leave with an item you can use every day. Thank you Georgie.
Response from Hands of Tym:Thank you Fi!
The build a bag course was one of the best things I have done all year. It was so cool choosing the colour combinations and using the expert machinery and tools. Georgie was warm and friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed and laid back. I was amazed how much we achieved in just one day. People always comment on my beautiful backpack. Next I’m going to do the make a wallet in a day course. I thoroughly recommend these unique and special courses.
Response from Hands of Tym:Thanks Laura it was great to have you and your bag is amazing!!
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.
Response from Hands of Tym:Thanks Alex and I am so happy to hear she loved it!
I had a great day at the workshop with Georgie. Never in a million years did I think I could create something good enough to be in a designer handbag shop but I did! 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!
Response from Hands of Tym:Thanks Liz you and Lucy were amazing company in the workshop. Enjoy your gorgeous bucket bags and I hope to see you on another in the future
I thoroughly enjoyed my Tote ‘Bag in a day’ one day course, so much so that I’ve signed up for more! I love the bag I made and had so much fun making it. I’ve since received many lovely compliments about my tote. It is obvious that Georgie is an expert in her field and enjoys passing on her knowledge - she does so in a calm, reassuring manner which makes the course perfect for beginners. Thank you so much Georgie!
Response from Hands of Tym:Thanks Alyson and looking forward to seeing you on your next courses!
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
Response from Hands of Tym:Thanks very much Paul for your kind words. I am so glad you found it helpful!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Georgie for the day. She is very knowledgeable in her craft and imparts this knowledge along with instructions in a clear and unrushed manner so that every stage is easy to follow and enjoyable. The workshop venue is well equipped with everything you need prepared and accessible and lunch was just delicious. I can highly recommend the bag in a day course and am thrilled with my lovely bag. Thank you Georgie!
Response from Hands of Tym:Hi Carole, I loved having you and Lorraine in the workshop and congrats on your gorgeous bag - the colours were just perfect!
I had a fabulous day and came away with a lovely , unique, excellent quality bag. Thank you so much Georgie for sharing your skills and being so welcoming. A brilliant day!
Response from Hands of Tym:Your bag was stunning and so well made! Thank you for the lovely company and your kind words :)
This was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative workshop.I enjoyed it very much and learnt the skill of making a beautiful leather bag. Georgie was patient and encouraging and guided me through every step. The bag will be cherished forever!
I went on this course with my mum, and we absolutely loved it!! I am soo pleased with my bag! The course was great - Georgie was a great tutor and the day felt so relaxed! I have had so many compliments on my bag already!! We hope to come back to do another course soon! Thanks Georgie x
Response from Hands of Tym:Hi Briony, thanks very much for the lovely review, your bags were gorgeous. You and your mum were the perfect workshop guests and I would love to have you back anytime. Xxx
I made a small bucket bag in a day!! It was such fun. I went with my sister and a friend a couple of weeks before lockdown. Georgie was brilliant at explaining and demonstrating all the processes and skills needed, step by step. She was consistently positive with both patience and understanding, even when I went beyond the end time. The biggest decide I had t make was which colour leather to choose!
Georgie provided an excellent lunch , drinks and cake So there was no preparation needed for us.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone.
Response from Hands of Tym:Thank you Sheila it was so lovely having you all!
I bought this kit from Georgie having had no experience at all of leather work and I wasn’t sure how good I would be but I needn’t have worried. Georgie was so helpful before I even bought it, helped me pick the colours, discussed what would fit in there (as I wanted to use it for my camera) and even sent me photos, she really goes above and beyond!
When the kit arrived it was beautifully packaged, really high quality materials inside and lovely clear instructions and video links for all the tricky bits. I absolutely LOVED making this kit and my finished bag is beyond gorgeous and I never imagined I would be able to make something like this at home. I probably wouldn’t have been able to do one of Georgie’s classes due to distance so this has been the best option for me and I would recommend it to anyone!
Response from Hands of Tym:I am so pleased to read this :) thank you for your lovely kind words!
Georgie is the best! Highly recommend this course. I've done two others too and they're all excellent 🙂
Response from Hands of Tym:Thank you!
I had a wonderful time & came away with a fantastic bag. Georgie was very patient & great at explaining each step we took.
Bag looks so good that none of my friends will believe that I made it - am delighted with the whole day
Response from Hands of Tym:Thanks for the comments, it was ovely to meet you and you made such a beautiful bag. I hope you enjoy it! Well done!XX
Fantastic day making a bucket bag. Georgie was such a good teacher, very kind and patient. She explained everything very clearly. I love my bag and I've had many compliments. Would certainly recommend any course that Georgie runs.
Response from Hands of Tym:Thank you Mary and well done for your gorgeous bag 😍😍 I hope to see you on another one day!
