Professional Leather Bag Making for Beginners – 3 Days

If you want to bag-make with genuine leather but are nervous of trying it, this course is ideal for you. It will give you the confidence to make your own leather bags at home.

The Beginner Leather Bag Making course is almost 24 hours over 3 days of fun (9.30am to about 5pm), sewing and learning how to make a professional-quality leather bag that is good enough to be a fantastic gift or even launch you into selling. The class will be a maximum of 6 students, so you can get as much help as you need.

The bag we’ll make seems quite basic at first glance, but we will add a lot of techniques that are also in much more complex designs, making this an excellent springboard to any bag you want to make.

You can choose your own colour scheme from our leather stash and all the materials, interfacing, stabiliser, threads and bag hardware you need are supplied.

VERY IMPORTANT! Before booking, please check that your machine can cope with sewing at least 6 layers of faux leather or vinyl. Flat sewing is fine – if the machine can do that, we can manage lumps and bumps!  

**This course is a little different from many others in that making a bag isn’t the point of it, although you will indeed make one. The focus is on learning new transferable techniques and skills that you will be able to use on so many bags you make in the future.

You will need to bring your own sewing machine, fabric scissors, spare needles (leather needles not usually needed, but jeans needles are good) and any favourite sewing tools, but everything else is provided.

Refreshments are provided and you might like to bring a packed lunch with you – we’ll have a break in the middle of the day.

You’ll learn  –

  • Choosing and handling leather
  • How to make professional quality rolled handles
  • Creating and applying custom bag feet
  • How to create a zipped pocket the pro way
  • How to use edge paint and get a professional finish with it
  • Sewing the bag together and topstitching
  • Reducing bulk with leather
  • A sneaky way of getting your bag right-sides-out without ugly seams!
  • An easy way to add a zipper pull without tools

All inclusive ~ £235.00 –
