What you'll do

We will start the workshop with a warm welcome in my home, a coffee or tea and we will get to know each other a little bit. I will also explain you all about leathercrafting and the steps we will take during the workshop.
When we are ready to start, you will each be provided with a piece of leather and all tools necessary for making your specific leathercraft. Together, we will work step by step, me checking every step to assure that it has been done perfectly and help resolve any issues that you may have throughout the process, making sure that you pay special attention to all the little yet important details necessary for creating a perfect piece.

At the end of the workshop, I will be teaching you how to carve your name or initials on leather, so you could create your own personalized brands on your unique products!

PLEASE NOTE: To make sure you will have a professional and finished product at the end of the workshop, you will go home with a product I created before, as shown in the pictures. In case you would like to create and take home your own product, please look at the other design workshops or write me a message for more information!

Hi everyone! I’m a young designer with a passion for the art of leather crafts! I’ve been working in the designing industry for years & have been amazed by leatherwork from day one! Due to my love for this craft, I started learning more & more, building my knowledge & increasing my experiences to become an expert in the field of leatherwork in the country of leather, Italy! :) I am here to share my passion with you and show you how a piece of raw genuine leather can be transformed into a unique piece of art!

Ein cooler Kurs mit viel Handarbeit. Es sind keine Grenzen gesetzt. Man kann sich komplett verwirklichen wenn man möchte. Allerdings ist die Zeitangabe mit 1h in meinen Augen falsch. Um eine eigene Tasche herzustellen braucht man mindestens 4h wenn nicht sogar noch länger. Alles in allem war es eine tolle Erfahrung.

This was a wonderful experience and it was so great to spend our evening with them. I can definitely recommend this to anyone and I fully believe this is great value. They really took the time to make sure we learned, understood and left with complete items. Loved it! Thank you so much :)

De workshop is echt super leuk om te doen! Je bent creatief bezig en Emma legt goed uit wat je moet doen en helpt waar nodig. Ondanks dat wij heel erg uit liepen met de tijd, bleef ze rustig alles uit leggen en nam daar ook de tijd voor. Dat was erg fijn. We zijn naar huis gegaan met twee prachtige tassen! Dankjewel Emma :)

Emma and her boyfriend Hossein welcomed us in their magical home for this unique experience. We really liked how welcoming and friendly they are. If you’re into fashion, crafting and a cup of coffee (or tea) surrounded by a cute environment, head there!!!
