Suitable for complete beginners (adults and children)
Step into a magical studio and learn one of the oldest crafts known to mankind. Craft your own professionally finished leather goods using the same premium leather, tools and techniques used in my work. You will leave with leather goods as made by you and personalised with your initials. Whether you are leather curious or a serial hobbyist - this workshop will make a leather lover out of you!
We start by discussing my journey from lawyer to professional craftsman followed by a talk on the history of leather and its historical trade in London. We also have a comprehensive overview of tanning and current views on sustainability, ethics and welfare.
There will then be an overview of the crafting process, tools and how to use them and safety procedures before going on to choosing patterns and leather to make your chosen items. These have been cleverly designed with a modern minimal aesthetic and are suitable for all abilities, ages and genders.
The class is an intimate group of maximum four students. You will work on the chosen projects with individual attention given throughout the class and we finish by packing the item to take home or to give as a gift.
