What a fantastic experience! We worked in a proper leather workshop with access to all the grown-up machinery and big workbenches. Eli was a very patient teacher, with an easy-going, friendly approach, who enabled us to learn the techniques and really get stuck in to make our pretty perfect bags. It's clearly important to Eli's ethos that we used recycled and reclaimed leather - if you're not that way inclined, don't be put off - it was top quality. It was a really motivating, fun workshop and we left with bags to be very proud of.

Your Teacher

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.
