Love and Salvage is trying to plug a gap - creating durable fashion accessories from waste materials and teaching others the skills to do the same!

Working with leather and bag and shoe making is easy. The workshops demystify techniques so that students leave with the knowledge to approach their own more complex projects.

We work with local furniture businesses collecting their waste leathers and fabrics to turn into accessories. So students have a huge range of trendy colours and textures to choose from. All abilities are supported in small classes in the designers own home.

My husband bought me a place on Eli’s Bucket Bag Workshop for my birthday > it was amazing!! Eli was extremely friendly and encouraging. She quickly put me at ease & inspired confidence. She had a wide range of leather colours to choose from and was happy to tailor the bag to my requirements. I would highly recommend attending one of her workshops and can’t wait to return to make something else!! It is a fabulous idea to salvage leather from clothes and furniture and to turn it into something lovely, unique and wearable. I had an amazing experience and would not hesitate to recommend these workshops.

I had a lovely day with Eli, making my amazing bucket bag, used a great piece of leather and learnt lots of new techniques, learnt all about the different tools and used a commercial sewing machine....The end result a beautiful bag , and I've caught the leather bag bug, so hopefully I'll be making more, can't wait to do some more courses.

My friend and I had a lovely day making our own bucket bags. There was a lot of fabric to choose from and the small group (just the two of us) meant we could ask as many questions as we wanted. Would definitely recommend :)

I absolutely loved my workshop day with Eli! She is so welcoming, friendly and patient. We managed to make a gorgeous orange bucket bag without any problems whatsoever. I shall definitely be making some more of these bags in the future!
