Hello, my name is Justine, I teach leather crafts in Sydney.

We do everything by hand, such as stitching and paint edge and cutting leather, in a fun but professional way.

Thank you Justine for holding such a great class! We made flat wallets and learnt how to saddle stitch in her sun dappled studio. It was fun and therapeutic.

Justine is an exceptional teacher with an unparalleled understanding of leathercraft. Her depth of knowledge is truly impressive, and she has a remarkable ability to convey complex concepts in an accessible way. Not only does she excel in her expertise, but her friendly and talkative nature adds an enjoyable dimension to the learning experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Justine for anyone seeking a knowledgeable and engaging teacher in the realm of leathercraft.

Making process is straightforward and easy to follow as a beginner.
I highly recommend this class if you want a peaceful morning :)
I hope I can attend more classes with her in the future.

Time flew by in the workshop. I contacted Justine beforehand with a specific design I wanted to create and she was so helpful. Learnt a lot. Everything was hands on. I’ll definitely be taking the skills on to other projects. Thanks Justine!

Justine was a really good teacher and helped us create wonderful pieces that we love! We've gotten many compliments about it since this morning (many can't believe they are handmade).

A variety of templates (you'll be spoiled for choice), materials, hardware and tools were provided and her small little studio was really homey as well.

Thank you for giving my parents an awesome birthday experience (and myself too for that keychain making experience!)

Justine is a super knowledgable leather crafter/designer and so far I have learned a lot about crafting and templating designs, layouts and cutting.

If you are a complete beginner or a little more experienced you will learn a lot from her years of experience and enthusiasm for the craft.

Looking forward to the rest of the course!

I had a great time with Justine on Sunday. Not only was she extremely patient with us but she also made the experience very personable. Each participant was able to choose their own designs from a wide selection and work at their own pace.

Initially I had intended to make the card wallet as a gift but ended up adoring my own so much that I kept it.

The class overall was very pleasant and I would love to come back in the future to work on another project with her.

Justine was a very informative and patient teacher. She was really knowledgeable in her field. The overall workshop was really enjoyable and I highly recommend this experience.

Michelle Nguyen Mar 2022

Matching to the atmosphere of the studio and location, both the class and teacher was nice and quaint. Despite the heavy rain we experienced on the day, it proved to be a little addition to the mood as it helped us immerse ourselves into the class.

Justine was very patient with us and went through each step thoroughly. She ensured that each of us was on task and did not rush the group, allowing for everyone to work at their own pace.

In terms of material provided, we were given an array of different types of leather to choose from. This included a variety on texture, thickness and colour. There was also a wide selection patterns and designs available. Additionally, we were also able to add our own monogrammed chosen word/name/initials. Thus making the experience very personalised.

In summary, the class was extremely flexible in that it allowed for each person's personality to show through their project. It was definitely a fun class and experience that we would recommend to others. Thanks a bunch again Justine!

We thoroughly enjoyed our private class of two. Justine was welcoming into her studio and made us feel at ease with our materials and tools. She was patient with us and helped us through each step in the process and we walked away with two fine examples of a leather wallet, even for complete novices. Excellent value for money and highly recommended.

Justine is a great teacher! She is very patience and explain every steps very clearly, though it didn't stop her for being at hand to jump in and help if needed! There was a good range of leather of various colour and texture to choose from. I am loving what I have made :) Looking forward to more classes from Justine!

Justine was a lovely instructor, we had fun making our wallets. It wasn’t too strict or formal which was nice, she gave us different options in regards to design and colours which allows us to make it personable.

A really fun class. Justine was thorough in teaching the steps. I was very lucky to have a one-on-one class with her. Very good facilities, materials and workshop. The leather quality is amazing. I would be very careful in doing each step though because any mistakes/imperfections will carry over!

Meredith Draper Mar 2020

Class was such a good size (3 of us).
Didn't feel any pressure to do anything quickly or like I couldn't keep up.
Justine was so lovley and took everything step by step.
I got a lift there and there was a public bus 4 mins walks away which took me to the nearest station so good location relative to public transport.
Justine gave you so much choice in regards to style and leather options. She was able to support you to make the card holder perfect for, your needs and style.

Thank you.

Charlotte Allinson Nov 2019

Had a great time at this workshop, I made a cardholder as a gift and I am really pleased with it. Justine was really friendly and showed me exactly what to do to ensure it came out the best it could. I could have sat in her workshop all day and I am already planning on booking another!

Justine and Chloe were great! Setup was very quick. They briefed the group and helped us all along the way. They were very nice and knowledgeable, we even had a good laugh with them. We learnt about the leather, how to saddle stitch, how to attach the button, how to paint and how to stamp personalise. Thanks Justine and Chloe

Justine was simply amazing. She displayed so much patience and was very thorough in making the best product for my partner and I. The class was very therapeutic and made our Saturday Rainy Day one of the best decisions! My partner is really really interested in getting into more classes. Thank you Justine for the pleasant experience!

We had such a fabulous time at Justine's workshop today! I felt so proud being able to make my very first leather card holder. The space was very nice and cosy with plenty of working space for each student. We were so excited with the variety of leather colour options well as paint and threads too. I highly recommend this course to anyone and would definitely come back to learn and make more leather goods! :)
