What a lovely way to spend a weekend. The studio is well equipped with good light ,the material choices were very plentiful & a very relaxed atmosphere. My handbag is almost professional! Generally it was very inspiring.
Myself and friend decided not to waste time and money on christmas and birthday presents but would instead have experiences together. We are booked on the two day course with Rebecca in November but prior to that attended the shopping and leather trip to London. We had a fantastic day, we went round parts of London you would not normally see and gained fantastic experience in leather and trimmings. We would really recommend this and are looking forward to our making course.
I attended the Tote bag course and had a fantastic day, Rebecca is so welcoming and the studio is perfect, everything you need is to hand. Rebecca explained all about the different types of leather and various tools, then provided support & advice thro the whole experience. I would highly recommend this course as an introduction to bag making, everyone loves the bag I made, including me :)
I loved this course, I learnt so much and was very pleased to take home my finished product. Rebecca the teacher was fabulous she gave me the exactly the right amount of help and encouraged me to do things I had never done before. This course would suit a beginner or a more experienced leather worker as Rebecca always seemed to have something new to teach me.
I highly recommend it Thankyou
Had a brilliant day making a tote bag with Bex who was the most patient teacher. So well organised especially as it was only her second class since lockdown. We learnt so much that we are going to go back for another bag! Excellent value - Bex even stayed late so that we left with our bags totally completed thanks for an amazing day see you soon!
This is a great course and I'd highly recommend this to anyone who fancies having a go with leather sewing. As I've only used a sewing machine a handful of times, Rebecca was very supportive, providing instructions and boosting your confidence along the way! Having attended in August 2020 where people have been very cautious of their activities and whereabouts but I felt very safe in the workshop with Rebecca. It's a great feeling at the end of the day, walking out of the workshop with a bag you have made! 100% recommend :)
I have made both the hobo and the shopping bag. The course and teaching was so good on the first course that I came back for another one. I can thoroughly recommend these courses. It is a lovely day crafting with a beautiful bag at the end of it.
We have taken a few courses with the lovely Bex and, as always had a fantastic day making the Hobo bag. Bex's studio has great lighting and is well equipped with plenty of work space and sewing machines.
Bex has been sponsored by Tysew and has several of their industrial sewing machines for student use. As it was our first time using industrial machines with walking feet, she spent time explaining how to use them and allowing us time to practice. We soon had the hang of it, and made the bags with no problem. Bex always uses top quality leather and hardware so the bags are stunning, I have had lots of comments about my lovely bag, my mum has bag envy!! .
Lunch was provided and it was really enjoyable to sit with the other students and have a natter. We travelled from north Kent (around 80 miles) but soon found another student had travelled further and was also a repeat student. Obviously shows what a great teacher Bex is! I'm a confident sewer but learnt a huge amount from Bex. I've booked again to make the backpack in March.
Loved making my clutch bag and it turned out fabulous thanks to Rebecca and her great teaching and advice. It was all very interesting and has given me another craft to research. I will certainly be coming back for more.x
The one day leather tote making day with Rebecca was one of the best crafting days I have attended. I learnt to sew with leather using an industrial machine which was a first for me. Rebecca is a wonderful lady providing plenty of encouragement, supervision and precise instructions on the making of the tote. There was a friendly atmosphere with plenty of encouragement. End result - a beautiful navy tote bag. Thanks Rebecca for such a wonderful day.
I’ll be back.
This is a really enjoyable course and I had a great day! Rebecca is very knowlegable and patient, and I came away with a lovely tote bag plus plenty of information regarding buying leathers and equipment. I highly recommend this course if you are a complete beginner like myself, and I'll definitely book on to another course. Thanks Rebecca! :)
I have just finished my two day leather handbag making course with Rebecca, which I have thoroughly enjoyed.
I have always wanted to make a handbag and after some research on the internet found Rebecca’s course.
Rebecca is a true professional of her craft and an excellent teacher, she is very patient with her students taking the time to explain leather processes, leather production, pattern making, cutting, and using industrial sewing machines. I made a brown leather hobo bag which I lined with Chinese silk, I love it 💕
I will be recommending Rebecca and her courses to all my work colleagues, friends and family. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I had a lovely time making my first leather bag. I was able to make a bag that was exactly what I wanted with support from Rebecca-Jane. Her expertise was obvious and really helped when I made small changes to one of her designs. It was a really friendly and relaxed environment to work in, with all the equipment we could need.
I absolutely loved this day - and I came away with a gorgeous bag. Still can’t believe I was able to make a leather bag that looked so professional!
Rebecca is lovely, and has lots of experience and knowledge that she is happy to pass on. Her studio has everything you need and is lovely, as is lunch.
Would highly recommend this course, really inspirational. I’m going to go back to make another bag soon.
