Williams Handmade Leather Workshops

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.
