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: different types of coin purses, pencil case, key chain, earrings.

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!

What a GREAT experience! We enjoyed the workshop a lot and Emma is such a friendly host. - Magical location in a monumental building - Emma has lots of knowledge about leather that she shares in a fun and interesting way - thoughtful host (coffee and nice music for a chilled vibe) - You can pick out your own piece of leather that fits your style preference - You make it yourself but Emma is there every step of the way to help you if needed I would really recommend this for couples to do as a date or a small group of friends!

It was an evening with a lot of fun. Emma was a special host. She gave us a warm welcome in her house. We could be creative on our own and she explained all necessary work steps in detail. The atmosphere also with the other group members was great. We would do the workshop again.

Wir hatten einen super entspannten Abend und haben sehr viel gelernt. Die familiäre, persönliche Atmosphäre hat einen ganz besonderen Rahmen geschaffen. Wir haben mit viel Leidenschaft und Liebe zum Detail viel über das Handwerk gelernt und konnten uns kreativ austoben. Danke für den besonderen Abend

I purchased this class as a surprise for my husband and it did not disappoint! Emma was kind, compassionate, and informative. She taught us how to make our own leather craft and allowed us to be creative and customize our piece as we desired. She was very easy to work with and even understood when our schedule changed unexpectedly and we needed to arrive at a later time. I learned alot and walked away with a beautiful one-of-a-kind wallet! Would definitely recommend!

Great experience with Emma's partner Hossein who ran the workshop. Hossein took the time to explain each step of the process, and helped us create the card holder we wanted. The process took a bit longer than 1 hour, and Hossein was fine to continue working with us to complete the card holders to perfection. I really enjoyed being able to choose which type of leather, colour, thickness, and the different templates available to work from. It was very interesting to see what goes into making cardholders, from the template, cutting, sanding, stitching and final engraving of our initials. Overall, it was a really memorable experience and we both came out with a lovely leather cardholder to take home. I would recommend this experience greatly to anyone interested in leather-craft-making.
