Enjoyable course and fantastic teacher. Would definitely do again. Leather is such a creative medium.

Tom McClean Mar 2022


Course content was right for the duration - enough detail and scope, but not so much we just skipped across everything. Phil, the teacher, was very knowledgeable and had a great way of explaining things practically. The physical materials on offer were fantastic.

Christina Sceats Mar 2022


This was a fantastic intro class to stiching and braiding leather.
Phil was highly knowledgeable, clear in his instructions and very helpful.
Plus it's great working with salvaged leather.
I had a really enjoyable time.
