Weekend Leather Course for Beginners


The leather weekend workshop is the crash course in our series of workshops. During these weekends, you will learn the basics of leather processing while experimenting on clutch or a small handbag. The focus of this course is to gain an overview of different techniques in leather manufacturing so that participants can manufacture their own products in the future. We are also happy to discuss problems you have experienced while working with leather in the past. Just bring up your questions during the workshop.

At the end of the course, each participant will receive a small folder containing everything that was discussed during the course. No prior knowledge in working with leather is required for this workshop, but a little experience in manufacturing products can be helpful. We provide the tools, but it would be helpful if you can also bring your own: metal ruler, good utility knife (ideally a roll knife), hammer, leather hole punch tool, cutting board, pencil, paper, scissors.

Weekend Leatherbag Course for Advanced


This leather course is ideal for participants who already have some experience in leather work and the manufacture of bags or accessories. Ideally, you have already visited our leather beginner’s course or the leather weekend workshop. For attending this course you should already be able to sew with the sewing machine (this does not necessarily have to be a leather sewing machine) or you are already relatively safe in the hand sewing with the two-needle technique or the hand sewing machine.

The theme of this workshop is a leather handbag. To ensure that all participants have the chance to finish a bag in two days, we will work with existing patterns. Smaller adjustments to the individual ideas of the participants are, of course, possible.

The participants can select from 4 different patterns and make a shopper, a bucket bag or one of two smaller handbag models with shoulder strap. It is also possible that the participants bring their own finished pattern. The material is not included in this course, but can be bought in our studio or you bring your own Material.

The bags can be sewn by hand and by experienced participants also with the machine. The bags can be made with or without inner lining and with buttons or zippers.

This course teaches the following skills:

Production of a leather handbag with handle or shoulder strap
Understanding of cutting patterns for leather processing
Different leather qualities and the right choice of leather for the product to be manufactured
Leather tools and their application
Prepare leather for processing
Attaching buckles, zips and buttons
Finishing and sewing of inner lining
Production of inner pockets
