What you'll do

We will meet at Open Space studio in Hackney Wick, where I will introduce and explain this experience while we enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. Then, out of a piece of leather of your own choice, I will teach you how to create a small cross body bag or personal item. We will select leather that suits your style and mood, and then start crafting. During the following two and a half hours, I will explain the basics of the leather craft and how to read a paper-cut pattern. To cut the leather, we will use graphic knives and metal rulers. To put the pieces together, we will use a light industrial sewing machine and a skiver, which will make your piece look like the real deal.
