Design and make leather gloves in London.

Katherine Pogson is one of very few in the UK teaching the art of hand-making fitted leather gloves. 

Katherine studied the art of table-cutting at one of the last remaining leather glove factories in Britain, from craftsmen with over forty years experience, encouraged by Cornelia James, glove-maker by Royal Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen.

Course content:

  • Identify the different parts of a traditional glove pattern
  • Adapt a glove pattern to fit your own hand
  • Select, source and prepare fine leather
  • Master three different hand-stitches

Our course includes a visual overview of historical and fashion images, factory visits and advice on tools, equipment and resources.

Students include beginners, improvers, designers from other disciplines and emerging design businesses. Group sizes are small, allowing plenty of time for individual attention.

Dates for glove-making coming up soon in 2017 and 2018:
