What you'll do

In this two-hour workshop, you can make two leather accessories. I have different designs ready for you to select from—a cardholder, plant hanger, keychain, sleeve for sunglasses, and many more. Start by selecting your leather for both accessories. I will tell you more about the types of leather to use and their characteristics. Then I'll show you different cutting techniques for all types of leather. Depending on your design, you will fold and hammer to create the shape, or you will use a professional industrial sewing machine to bring your work to life. Then, voilá, your accessories are ready to use. My studio is the perfect place to get to know the basics about leather crafting. It's an inspiring place where I only work with surplus leather in a sustainable way.

Margriet

From my youngest years, I was a fan of big leather bags. As soon as I got the chance, I started making them myself. I liked it—as did the people around me. I took a shot at designing bags and started my own company, monsak. Five years later, I am still passionate about it. I only work with surplus leather—that makes my company sustainable, and is the perfect way for me to do business in an honest way.
