This intensive three-day course allows you to design your own project with support from our resident expert, Katherine Pogson, and explore a variety of decorative and construction techniques for handbags, leather fashion accessories and other leather products.
Day One focuses on design: Katherine will lead you step by step through the process of developing an idea into a working pattern to test out volume, shape and proportion.
Days Two introduces a variety of construction techniques for hand-stitching leather, including three different seam types and the practicalities of inserting zips, pockets and handles.
Day Three allows you to complete your personally designed project, and shows you how to finish edges and attach metal fittings for professional results.
If you have a particular project or idea you would like to develop, please do get in touch - our small class size means we can tailor the course plan to your needs!
