Eight is the magic number!

Starting on the 8th January, we will be running a course on Monday evenings between 7pm and 9pm for 8 weeks.  This would be a perfect Christmas gift for someone (or for yourself!) or for anyone looking to start a new craft in the new year.

You will create your own beautiful leather Messenger Bag with solid brass or chrome buckle and fittings which you can personalise in a smooth natural hide. Taught in a small and friendly group (maximum 4 people) supervised by Catherine, this workshop is a great way to introduce yourself to working with leather and will teach you important basic skills. Original ideas and creativity are encouraged as you are individually tutored. Try a range of techniques under expert guidance including pattern cutting, stitching, punching, edge finishing, rivetting, dyeing and mark making, working with vintage and antique tools.

The cost of the 8 week- long course is £275 and includes tuition, materials, tea, coffee and the all - important cake!
