Gem's Leather School!

  • Cardiff MADE 41 Lochaber Street Cardiff, Wales, CF24 3LS United Kingdom (map)

(A 5 week course, each Monday evening in September)

I’ve been desperate to share my love of working in leather since I started Lark and now I’m settled in my studio I’d like to offer a short course to show you the amazing qualities of this material, the awesome feature of this course is that we’ll only be using upholstery leather I’ve saved from landfill.

In the first 3 weeks there will be led projects making small useful products such as coin purses, book marks, book covers & sunglasses cases which will include pattern cutting, polishing, leather cementing, hammering, stitching, hole punching, rivets, studs, poppers. For the final 2 weeks you will be able to use these skills to create your own product with my guidance and support.

The price includes all materials, additional leather is available to buy and you can borrow tools between workshops to finish pieces and I recommend where you can buy your own if you get hooked.
