Courses description

Spend a few weeks learning the basics of manufacturing leather goods, utilising traditional old-timey practices such as saddle stitching, skiving, and burnishing while using the toughest natural materials around Bristol. Buckle up for a ruggedy hands-on experience.

In the first two weeks we will be going through the techniques and equipment, then we will start working on a leather product chosen by you.

Leather products: bifold card wallet | card wallet | coin pouch | key accessory | belt |


Sustainable Practice:

Leather is a bi-product of the food industry in service of many trades as a durable, reliable, and natural resource.
Using saddle-grade vegetable-tanned leather from the local Bristol tannery, which is traditionally produced, chemical free we can prevent this surplus material from ending up in landfills. Therefore I offer a lifetime warranty on all goods produced through this workshop.


Committed to respectfully fabricating everything here in the UK.
Forever on the quest of making the most durable goods.
