Attending Eli’s workshop was a fantastic day, she is very friendly and enthusiastic and wants you to end up with the leather bag of your dreams!! Her studio was comfortable and during the workshop Eli was able to spend a lot of time assisting and showing me (a novice) how to make an amazing bag.

I had a great day with Eli! I learned so much about working with leather. What once seemed daunting to me ended up seeming so simple and easy under Eli's great tuition. I ended up with a gorgeous yellow bag that I proudly use on a daily basis. (Eli has so many lovely leathers to choose from) And I look forward to making more bags using the knowledge I gained from my day with Eli.

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.

Notes

Bag making is hard work so we will need to keep our energy up! Please bring some food to bring with you or be prepared for a quick lunch from a local shop or cafe. Drinks and a snack are included in the price.

Age Requirement

14

All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Flexible cancellation policy

Any class can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase. See cancellation policy.
