Loved this experience- a 1:1 tutorial on making a leather pouch for my sister. Great selection of leathers. Very professional and welcoming. Learned new skills which i will hopefully use in the future. Thanks so much

My husband and I attended this workshop on our wedding anniversary. The workshop was great and we had a lovely lunch afterwards in a nearby pub. Leonie is a fab teacher and we are both delighted with our diary cases!

Leonie was very warm and welcoming. She was very helpful and she was able to support me (a complete novice!) and show me step by step how to make a beautiful leather diary wallet. I am amazed at how good it looks and I am not normally artistic. Leonie reassured me throughout each stage and helped me when I got stuck. It was a brilliant experience and I have a lovely gift that I will use for many years to come.
