Join me in my Bristol studio in Montpelier to make your very own leather bag or backpack.  There will be 2 styles to choose from: a saddle bag or a bucket bag. Both styles are constructed using absolutely no stitching, sewing machines or needles!  Pieces are woven together with some strategically-placed rivets to keep them secure. You'll even get to choose the colour of your fully functional leather bag.  The class size is limited to a maximum of 4 people to ensure you get plenty of one to one attention! 


  • How to use a variety of leather work tools to cut, punch out and finish leather.
  • How to set metal rivets to join leather. 
  • Choose from two bag shapes - saddle bag or bucket bag (bags will measure roughly 28cm x 28cm when completed)
  • Choose from a wide selection of coloured leather
  • If you fancy, emboss your bag with your name or initials - discover how to use a hot foiling machine
