Event Details

2 Day Leather Bag Making Course

This 2 day leather bag making 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.

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 5 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.

  • Light buffet lunch and tea and coffee
