I loved the evening I spent with Carreducker trying to master hand-stitching a leather key-fob. Although I certainly failed to master it, I came away with a creation that I was proud of and thoroughly enjoyed the course. It's wet my appetite to learn more and wouldn't hesitate to return to do another. Fun, light-hearted and skilled; the team at CD made me feel at ease and very welcome.
A throughly enjoyable experience.
The school is conveniently located, close to Old Street underground station, and easy to find. After a warm welcome I met the other students, a really nice bunch, and found a seat at the spacious work table. The instructor was very experienced and patient and I simply could not believe that I was able to create such a cool leather piece on my first attempt - I am an artist but do not consider myself "handy" at all, so this came as a pleasant surprise and shows just how well thought-through the course is.
I attended Carreducker's Valentines day key fob class with my partner and would highly recommend it. We had an excellent evening learning the techniques and processes for making our own key fob which we could then take home. The venue was modern and clean. Frankey our teacher was knowledgable, friendly and patient. The class was well organised with all the tools ready laid out in preparation for us before our arrival. The class was taken at a relaxed pace and we weren't made to feel rushed at any stage, even though we weren't as fast as we could have been. Since it was Valentines day, they really did go over and beyond what we expected - laying out chocolates, strawberries and prosecco for us to enjoy to make the experience that little bit more special. It was very thoughtful and a nice touch! Thank you to the team at Carreducker for an amazing evening!
We learnt how to renovate, moisturise and feed leather shoes, followed by a complete mirror shine finish. Teachers Deborah & James are super friendly and relaxed, the atmosphere is all the more enhanced by the group and a jovial drink. The venue is great and easily accessible (Central London). It's a nice way to do something a little different, meeting new people and of course useful if you are interested in shoes and want to make sure you are looking after yours well. I highly recommend it!
