Leather Courses

WilliamsHandmade3

All leather courses are run from our spacious workshop based in a converted 1850’s school, what better place to learn a new skill? Group courses have a maximum of 6 students so each person receives plenty of individual tuition.. All courses are run by Sarah Williams, who has experience of working in the leather goods industry as a designer and sample maker and now runs small leather goods label Williams Handmade as well as teaching leather skills in Universities. All courses are designed so that you can take away your new skills and continue to make more leather goods at home. Sarah aims to make all courses both informative and enjoyable in a relaxed, friendly and productive atmosphere.

Two Day Leather Bag Course – £215

This course is suitable for beginners but is also a great follow up for students who have already attended our half day or one day beginner’s course, who should expect to be able to make a more complex product than complete beginners

The course will begin with students learning the basic leather skills (or refreshing your memory of them) by firstly making a small card case or coin purse on the first morning. You will learn marking out, choosing appropriate leather, hand saddle stitching and raw edge finishing.

Following this you will choose one bag to make; this could be a satchel, tote, or messenger bag. We will have prepared patterns and examples to help you decide. It is also possible to modify the examples to produce a bag which is truly unique. You will then be assisted to produce one unlined leather bag.

Course runs on both days from 9.30am – 5pm with a break for lunch and tea and cake breaks throughout the day. Light buffet lunch and tea and coffee included in the price. Also included in the price is the leather to make your first card case/coin purse but it does not include the cost of leather and fittings for your bag. Depending on the size of the product you can expect this additional cost to be approx. £20 – £50.

Group Course for Team Building or Hen Parties

The group leather workshops are perfect for a Hen Party, Birthday or just a great opportunity
to get together with friends or family. They can be booked on a date to suit you and there
are a few different options:

- Group of 6 people, each make your own leather card case/coin purse, complimentary

- Group of 6 people, each make your own hand stitched leather clutch bag, complimentary

Can be suitable for beginners or someone who is more advanced. Can be booked on a day to suit you. There may be an additional cost for leather/materials depending on the project.
