Bonner Leather Studio

Jeremy and Carla work together designing and making their leather goods just outside Cirencester. They have recently been combining other materials with their leatherwork, designing a new range.

Armitage Leather

Nigel has been a bespoke maker for thirty years focusing on the longstanding traditions of making leather goods completely by hand. Six years ago, after many requests, Nigel began teaching one to one classes to pass on these techniques. In more recent years this has expanded to include a comprehensive online resource which can be found across YouTube and Vimeo. Today, Nigel can now be found passing on his skills offering both individual and group courses in his Midlands based workshop which has been specifically designed around teaching the craft.

B18 Leather/Deborette Creative

Deborette Clarke is a designer/maker with a wealth of experience that covers many areas in the creative sector. I design and make small leather goods under the label B18 Leather. I am a qualified secondary school teacher with a specialism in Art & Design and Design & Technology, having taught for seventeen years. My background is in Fashion and Textiles. Whilst working on a variety of workshops for museums I decided to offer pop up workshops, which I later started running from my studio. The workshops and short courses have been created to be fun and informative. Most are suitable for a beginner or improver. They currently take place on weekends.

Diamond Awl

Diamond Awl Workshop presents practical leather courses. All tuition is based around traditional leatherwork skills and you will learn all you need to know about making premium leather goods, from wallets to leather bags. Our leather courses take place in an authentic leather workshop, conveniently situated in Saddleworth, within easy reach of Manchester and Leeds.

Identity Leathercraft

The Identity Store are experienced leather craft suppliers with a passion to pass on this amazing skill. The workshops are designed to teach basic to advanced leathercraft skills; as well as some project based arts and crafts workshops that can be done for a creative day out. The workshops are usually between 4-6 people and offer the chance for some personal attention. They are designed to offer the chance to make a specific project/s during the session that you can take home with you. Occasionally there may be a little finishing off of projects at home depending on how the session works out. Our tutors are experienced leathercrafters and knowledgeable about the subject and are always happy to discuss specific ways to adapt the projects to your interests.

Hands of Tym

Hands of Tym is a luxury leather goods operation focusing on ‘one by one’ humanised manufacture. Every piece unique and handmade.

Bringing ownership of craft back to the individual, reversing a division of labour and ensuring every piece holds a unique bond to the maker. Dreamt up in 2010 and realised in 2016 following a varied career in Accessories design and development.
