Step into an authentic leather studio and learn one of the oldest crafts known to man! Craft your own professionally finished leather goods using the same premium leather, tools and techniques used in my work. You will leave with leather goods as made by you and personalised with your initials or a message - the ultimate souvenir to remember your trip to Durban! Whether you are leather curious or a serial hobbyist - this workshop will make a leather lover out of you! We will start with a comprehensive overview of tanning and physical examples of the different leather qualities. You have a choice of items you can select from (please see photos). These have been cleverly designed with a modern minimal aesthetic and are suitable for all abilities, ages and genders. You will work on the chosen project(s) with individual attention given throughout the class and we will finish by packing the item to take home or to give as a gift. During this workshop you will learn: - Working with professional patterns - Cutting leather accurately - Punching holes (crafters love hammering!) - Sewing leather in the traditional manner (saddle stitching) - Use a professional heated tool - Burnishing leather - Using metal fittings
Working in the fashion retail sector in Johannesburg, Durban and Dubai, I yearned for a life free of commuting, offices and computers. I am self-taught leather crafter and in 2013 escaped the rat race to become a fulltime professional craftsman. I combine various traditional artforms from traditional English & Western leatherwork with the elegance and finesse of fine European leatherwork to give you a unique take on the craft. My work is an eclectic balance of colours and textures. I offer a variety private lessons as well as Corporate Team build options to inspire and keep the craft alive.

We'll conduct the workshop in the leafy suburb of Glenwood, situated in a listed victorian double story house, that has been converted into our very own cafe (downstairs), with our leather studio upstairs.
