7 hour workshop
This is a 2-day course running on both Sunday, Jan 5th and Saturday, Jan 11th. During this 2-day intensive course you will be making a leather crossbody bag. Prior to the course date, you will get to select the style of bag you wish to make as well as the colour of the leather. The pieces will be pre-cut to save on time but during the course you will learn how to construct and hand-stitch the bag without the need for a sewing machine.
You'll also learn how to finish all the raw leather edges for a neat and super professional finish. We'll let you do a practice run of the stitching on some scrap leather before you start stitching your bag and we will be there every step of the way to help you learn. It is very hands on but in a supportive and relaxing environment. We want you to have fun whilst learning!

About your host, The Handbag Atelier
The Handbag Atelier’s mission is to teach you how to make your own leather bags. What is cooler than wearing a bag that no one else in the world will? The school offers a selection of short-courses that will teach you all the essential skills that are needed to continue making handbags at home. Whether it’s a small crossbody bag, the iconic bucket bag or a bigger tote bag that you have your eye on, we have a selection of patterns and leathers that you can choose from to customise your design to look like you. You will learn all the basics from cutting leather to hand-stitching and finishing the leather edges and you will walk away with your very own leather bag. You will also get a list of tools and suppliers to help you continue the craft at home. No machines are required to make a beautiful leather bag!
All materials and tools are provided. Please note that we use Stanley knives and other potentially sharp knives and tools, as well as needles for hand-stitching the leather. We also use water-based glues for constructing the bags and occasionally some stronger glues. If you require further information, please contact us. Coffee, tea and cake are included! :)
