What you'll do

In the beginning, I welcome you to my home where the workshop will take place. We’ll then get to know each other better, chatting over a cup of tea or coffee :)
The workshop starts with me explaining about leather and introducing the basic tools required for leatherwork.
You will each be provided with a piece of leather and all tools necessary for making your specific craft of choice.
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.
The workshop will be finalized by me teaching you to carve your name on your individual creation and thus, creating your own personalized brands on your unique products!

The diversity in the final products of this workshop and the fact that other participants may be making different handicrafts, gives you the chance to witness varied crafts being made on the same day & to become somewhat familiar with each. It will no doubt broaden your horizons, introducing you to a wider range of concepts & a whole new unlimited world of unique creations to come!
If the timetable doesn’t work for you, message me & we’ll come up with something that does!

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!

We enjoyed our time but was disappointed by the event description. The description leads attendees(at least, me) to believe that we are making a purse and not simply selecting a pre-made item. We were excited to make something from Holland to take back home. If we wanted to buy a $70 purse, we would have in the central city. We booked for the experience of hand crafting. It seems falsely advertised.

I took my friend to Emma and her partner’s workshop, and it was much fun! We got to make our own design for what we wanted to create. They were very patient with us (we had never made anything like this before). We will remember this experience for years to come. Thank you!

This workshop offers you a very good view into the way how to craft leather. We finished our first piece during one hour with the help of the very competent and friendly coach.

Es war ein wirklich schöner Vormittag mit Emma und Hossein. Sie haben sich viel Zeit genommen und weitaus länger als nur eine Stunde. Mein Freund hat einen tolles Portemonnaie mit nach Hause nehmen können und ich habe eine schöne Handtasche erstellt. Ich hätte mir gewünscht, dass die Leder Auswahl größer wäre und Bespiele fertiger Produkte zur Veranschaulichung vor Ort gewesen wären. Alles in allem eine schöne Erfahrung!!

The experience itself was amazing. I created a cool item. My main issue is that they forgot the time that we were supposed to start. When i was booking the experience, the only times available for the whole day was 9am so i'm not sure why the host thought my activity was at 10am so because of that we started late. Also, i ordered some items to be picked up the following day. I arrived at the location about 45mins after my scheduled arrival time but they still hadn't finished my item so i was quite bumped about that. Apart from the time issues, i loved the actual experience.
