This was a brilliant workshop; Eli is a wonderful teacher. She gave me the technical skills to make a fab bag and encouraged me to make all the design choices. I'm now searching through my wardrobes to see if I can upcycled any of my jackets!

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.
