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 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.

Loved it! So happy with the clutch I got to design and make! I learned so much about working with leather and I'm excited to try to make one by myself in the future. Eli was also so patient and flexible with me rescheduling due to me being sick. Thank you!

I absolutely loved my workshop day with Eli! She is so welcoming, friendly and patient. We managed to make a gorgeous orange bucket bag without any problems whatsoever. I shall definitely be making some more of these bags in the future!

Enjoyed every minute! I can’t believe I managed to learn a new craft and gain a beautiful leather bag in the process! Thank you!

My friend and I had a lovely day making our own bucket bags. There was a lot of fabric to choose from and the small group (just the two of us) meant we could ask as many questions as we wanted. Would definitely recommend :)

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.

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.
