We use traditional leathercraft techniques (e.g., hand cutting, stitching & burnishing methods) and make our leather goods in our London studio.
The leathercraft course is made for anyone who is interested in learning leathercraft or wants to make a beautiful handbag for special occasion.
During the course, you will learn essential concept of the leathercraft and practice the skills while you work on your project. You will be able to design and make your own products after the course.
In the first two sessions, you will work on small leather items (e.g., mouse pad, keychain & card wallet etc.) to practice leathercraft skills. And you will focus on bag making for the rest of sessions. You will select from one of the bag designs including tote bag, crossbody bag and bucket bag. You will also have your initials/names stamped on your final pieces.
