What you will do

5 hour workshop

Daytime

On this wonderful workshop you will get to make your very own, slouchy tote using an old jacket.

This course includes: 1) Understanding patterns 2) Sewing leather 3) Deciding on design details 4) Construction of your bag 6) Using leather tools 7) Finishing with rivets and edge treatments

Old jackets have a story to tell and ready-made detail that you can incorporate into your own design. This workshop is about encouraging students to see the value that already exists in materials and details and use it! This also stops old clothing from going into landfill.

The finished bag is very versatile: From hobo to tote and back again! Bag dimensions: Width 35cm; Height 38cm; Depth 6cm Choose from a selection of jackets or bring your own. It is a small class - practically private tuition - each student is fully supported to finish their own bag.

Please be aware that we use a flatbed sewing machine. This course does not teach hand stitching or tooling.

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!

Upcycle a jacket into a leather bag by Love and Salvage - crafts in London

About your host, Love and Salvage

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.
