5 hour workshop

Daytime

You will learn all the techniques involved in making leather bags by producing your own backpack from start to finish!

We want each student to leave in love with their bag, excited about their designs and confident in their new skills.

To achieve this we provide a relaxed and fun environment and a practical approach to designing and making.

Our workshops are a chance to immerse yourself in the creative process and leave with your own UNIQUE bag.

The course includes:

  • Designing your backpack
  • Understanding and cutting patterns
  • Choosing from a range of leathers
  • Using leather hand tools
  • Learning to sew on an industrial machine
  • Fitting hardware
  • Making handles

All of the above is done on a very practical level, however, some notes are available online after the class.

What is provided?

Bring your own leather, or select from our colourful collection of 100% reclaimed leather.

Tea, coffee and snacks are provided and we take 45 minutes for lunch.

This is a 2 day course. Before you book make sure you have additional dates available to finish the bag. My studio is closed Sunday's but otherwise I am super flexible with dates. Just get in touch as soon as you have booked to confirm that second date

Did you know?

All the leather used is rescued from the waste stream. So, every bag made is one less pile of leather in landfill!

Eli is a great host and a tutor with amazing teaching skills. At the end of just 2 days I left with a lovely brown backpack and bag making skills. Would definitely come back to learn more and make more bags.

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.
