CovidProof -Rent a Leather Workplace Including Professional

Leiden, Netherlands

Experience hosted by Emma

  1. 60 mins
  2. Hosted in English and Dutch

What you'll do

In this experience, I usually offer all types of leather workshops, such as a keychain or wallet workshop, or one in which you learn to create a tote or laptop bag from scratch.

Now, because of the covid-19 restrictions, The Netherlands will be in a lockdown at least until Jan. 14th, 2022. This means I am not able to give the workshops as I used to. What I can do during the pandemic, however, is to rent my working table (including tools & advice) to you!

What does this entail and what can you expect?

First, I will welcome you to my brand-new business location in the center of Leiden. Then, I will assign you to the working table where you will work on your project of choice. This can be a keychain, cardholder, wallet, tote bag, or laptop sleeve, for instance. For all types I have designs ready, which you can use for free. Once you have a design in mind, you will choose a piece of leather of the wide range I have available, or you can bring your own piece that you'll be working on. You will work with the tools I have available. I will be there at all times to provide you with information in case the use of tools is unclear. So no worries if you are a beginner and never worked with leather before!

In the end, you will go home with a unique handmade leather craft!

Please note, the price is p.p./hour. In case you need more hours, please contact me after your booking.

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!

Where you'll be

The workshop will take place in a monumental building in the center of Leiden. From 1875 until 1950 it was one of the four buildings of the preserved food factory of Leiden. Since 1950, two of those buildings are still standing, and small local businesses were established in the different (renovated) areas. Now we can still enjoy the beauty of the high, wooden ceilings and cute windows, from a different perspective!

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.
