During the 3 hour half day workshop, guests will make 3 leather items. I provide a selection of items they can choose from. During the session I will teach them how to mark, cut, hole punch and stitch leather using traditional saddlery techniques. This is demonstrated with a card case where guests will use a pre-made template to make their own using choice of leather and thread colours from a wide selection on offer. They will also be shown how to finish the edges and emboss initials into their items for that personal touch.
After completing a Masters in Textile Design, with my love of upcycling and repurposing I have developed a range of bags and accessories made primarily from offcuts and recycled materials of wood and leather. Having over a decade of teaching experience behind me (I taught Design & Technology to 11-18 year olds) and nearly 20 years working with leather, I have built up an extensive range of skills and I am very lucky to now have the luxury of time and space to make my own products and to experiment with different techniques and styles. Ultimately though, I thoroughly enjoy being able to pass on my knowledge and passion for leather craft to other people by running a series of workshops. I cater for both individuals with one to one tuition and groups of up to 6 at my Surrey studio or larger groups at other venues.

The studio is in the Surrey countryside just outside the village of Cranleigh. We are based at Smithbrook Kilns which is a small development of offices and studios and includes a lovely cafe. The site was a brick kiln many years ago but was converted for business use in the 1980s. The buildings and site as a whole, all retain the original features from when they were working kilns which gives the place a lovely feel.

Class is not suitable for children under 16 years of age. Course is suitable for beginners so no previous experience of working with leather is required. If travelling by public transport allow plenty of time to get from the train station to the venue (at least 20 mins by taxi).
