Makeup Brush / Pencil / Pen / Tool Holder Workshop

2 x 2 hours 1 to 5 label $190

Don't have enough space in your brush holder? Not a problem. Make your own multi pocket holder to suit your needs (up to 10 pockets). Learn to make stylish luxury leather accessories, in this introductory leather workshop.
You will create a Makeup Brush/pencil/tool Roll & Small Make Up bag from luxury quality leather pieces.

This makes a great gift and also a quick entry into your first time working with leather using the traditional saddle stitching to create fun and unique accessories to use. In this 3.5 hour workshop you'll be practising cutting on leather off-cuts. Then choosing your leather and hardware and deciding on your shape for your items. I teach you how to cut, shape, trim, and finish your items creating a rather cute set of accessories that will look great.

This is a great fun way to spend a few hours gaining some knowledge and skills along the way, as well and along the process will have gained some new skills and a great insight into working with leather for your first time..

With my expert guidance throughout your workshop you'll be cutting your leather, marking out and chisel punching out your stitch holes, setting any hardware, waxing your threads, burnishing your edges and then finally bringing it all together by hand stitching using a traditional leather Saddle Stitch.

Don't worry if you're unfamiliar with any of the terminology as there is a demo of each stage and you are encouraged to practice on off-cuts of leather to build your confidence.

The Art of being a maker!

Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire. It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be taught.

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as 5 hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery crafted by yourself, a luxurious leather bag, a stunning knotted mala, or your own personalized luxury skincare products.

I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer, & maker of crafts. Coming from an Art History background, my love for art, the history of man, and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context, heavy with human drama, an artefact, an antique, pretty, and were relatively cheap. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire, I began to make my first wrapped earrings for fun. It was very therapeutic and relaxing until my husband at the time saw the box of earrings I had made, took them to work, and presented me with a box of money that afternoon, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began. That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now.

I am not your typical jeweller. I aim for grand pieces with fabulous stones, thus the term rockstar. The rocks I deal with are sparkly and precious. I own and manage Gems, Rocks, Bling in Sydney, working from my Surry Hills studio. I specialise in bespoke one of a kind pieces featuring precious stones & metals. I also facilitate jewellery classes for groups and individuals.

My first love is of course jewels, but leather is a close second. I revel in the feel of beautiful buttery leather and discovered I loved creating items from it when I decided to make and design packaging for my jewellery.

My daughter and I loved this class. Victoria was kind and friendly and a really great teacher.
The space was warm and welcoming and Victoria had a great choice of materials and all the tools required to finish our project. Can’t wait to go back.
