I had a fantastic time under Leonie's expert guidance making my own leather card holder! I thoroughly enjoyed working through all the steps from measuring to cutting to punching holes to stitching. I liked that you got the full experience with no shortcuts by which I mean things are already precut and half-done for you. Highly recommended!

Leonie was a great teacher - she was very good at guiding me through every step, being very detailed and also very patient. I came home with a lovely card wallet and it just made me feel so good about myself knowing it’s made by me:) Strongly recommended!

I really liked that Leonie took the time to explain the tooling and the different sorts of leather I could choose from and provided some more information also on other leather and what might be required to work with them instead of what I had chosen for this class. Furthermore, for me it was really helpful to learn about different ways of starting a seam as I will definately will do some leather work at home and know now how to create a piece for it to last as long as possible. Thank you every much Leonie, I really enjoyed your workshop!

In recent years she felt she had missed the hands on creative side of what she does and wanted to experience the craft side of design and hand making accessories once again.

Getting back to the fun and mindful process of hand making something from scratch was the driving force to set up her workshops. The process of teaching others how to hand make…

My mum and I had a wonderful time making coin purses in this workshop! Leonie was a great teacher, very encouraging and friendly. The whole process was so enjoyable and we're very proud of the products we walked away with - we'll use them for years! Highly recommend this workshop.

I strongly recommend this class, especially for couples :) We had a memorable time with her. It was a wonderful experience. She was kind, friendly and patient. Although we've never done this kind of stuff before, she made us look like an expert. We'd like to visit again!!

Leonie was super flexible and explained everything very well. She also tweaked it a bit to suit my level of experience. Really great afternoon.

I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson with Leonie! She taught very well and the end product was beautiful I must say. Easy to find the location and I would highly recommend Leonie to anyone. I would like to attend the making of a leather bag someday.
