Small Leather Goods Making DIY Class

Make a Coin Purse/Cardholder and Earphones Holder



2 hours 1 to 6 label $130


Learn to make stylish luxury leather accessories in this introductory leather workshop.

Learn to create a cardholder / coin purse and earphones / budsholder from luxury quality leather off-cuts.

This makes a great gift and is also a quick entry into your first time working with leather if traditional saddle stitching is not so important to you.

In the 2 hour workshop you'll be practicing cutting on leather off-cuts. Then choosing your leather, 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 knowledge and skills in crafting beautiful leather for your first time.

Masterful Makers - Luxury DIY Workshops.

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.

Victoria was so lovely, encouraging and helpful. 2 hours class became 4.5 hour cus we’re too slow. Gonna come back for other classes next time! Victoria is very friendly and interesting, she has a lot of knowledge or many different topics. We went for our anniversary and would highly recommend this as a couple bonding activity

I made a coin bag and earphone holder. Really enjoyed the class. Victoria is very friendly and funny. She gave us a lot of insights and useful tips to leather product making. Good selection of tools and leather to use for projects. She ensured that tools are used safely and gave plenty of help so that her students have a finished product to show off at the end . For more complicated projects, best to book earlier so that the teacher has time to prepare patterns ahead of time. Thanks for the wonderful experience Victoria!
