What you will do
2 hour class
During our evening accessory class you will spend two hours crafting as many accessories as time will allow you to make. You can choose from a sunglass case, a coin or card wallet, a passport holder, a simple envelope bag, or a keyfob and you can personalise the item with your initials for instance. You'll learn all the basics of working with leather from saddle stitching to burnishing the leather edges. This is perfect for beginners who want to get a feel to what it's like to work with leather before embarking on a larger project, such as a handbag. It's also a fun evening of crafting and learning something new!

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. We use Stanley knives and other potentially sharp knives and tools in this class and needles for hand-stitching. We also use water-based as well as some stronger glues to construct the items. Please contact us if you require further information.
