Leonie Saliba

Leonie has been passionate about art, crafts and creativity since she was a young child. She studied fashion and design at the University of Central England and then went on to build successful leather accessories brand.

In recent years she felt she had missed the hands on creative side of what she does and wanted to experience the craft side of design and hand making accessories again.

Getting back to the fun and mindful process of hand making something from scratch was the driving force to set up her workshops. The process of teaching others how to hand make items they would normally buy in a shop or online is a rewarding feeling. The end result that Leonie would hope to achieve is for you to go away having had a fun learning experience and feeling proud that you have handmade something that is unique with your own hands.

Leonie looks forward to welcoming you to her workshops.

Leonie was very attentative and encouraging. The information she provided us with was fantastic and more than enough to encourage me to persue leather charm making as a hobby to gift to friends and family. The quality of the item we created was so high! Thank you!

Leonie had so much passion and enthusiasm. She took us through each stage of making the key rings with patience and also made it really fun. It was great to have something like this at the festival to get us learning and it was nice to have something to take away. It’s clear she knows what she’s doing as had really beautiful products. The venue was nice for the amount of people.

Leonie taught how to make a tassel key ring using beautiful leathers. She was very knowledgeable about different types of leather and the making process. Leonie is impossibly glamourous yet down to earth and made everyone feel welcome. Seeing some of her designs, I may have to book myself onto one of her other workshops!
