To set the scene- the studio is on the 5th floor of a listed old stone tower building that overlooks the Grand Canal Dock and dates back to 1902. It has an interesting history and a wonderful character and we will tell you some of its story as we go through the experience. The studio is a dedicated professional workroom and on this experience you will make a personalised leather pouch. In addition you can create some personalised key fobs to compliment it, or just for the fun of it. I will walk you through each step of the process until you complete your project. You will also pick up information along the way on the multitude of leather varieties for an array of end uses from flooring to fashion and different aspects of working with leather as you decorate and sew your creation. During the session you will handle professional tools as you decorate your piece with prepared designs (or your own design) and pick up some leather-working techniques as we punch, emboss and hand-stitch. You will take away some new skills as well as a new piece to use and enjoy (or give as a gift) and that will also serve as a reminder of the experience.
For over 40 years now I have been engaged in making high end luxury apparel. I also work collaboratively with artists and designers on international projects. In addition to all the practical experience I also hold an MFA in fine art sculpture. My work has earned many awards and is held in the National Museum of Ireland.

The Design Tower is a historical building on Grand Canal Dock, dating back to 1902. In recent years it has become a highly dynamic area of the city with striking modernist architecture including the Liebeskind 'Bord Gais' theatre and the Marker hotel and an abundance of cafés to dream in. Our meeting point is at the entrance to the Design Tower and from there we will take the lift to the 5th floor studio which overlooks the canal.
