1 Day Leather Clutch Bag Making Course - Beginners - £110


This is a brilliant one day course where you will get to make a clutch bag from scratch and take it home at the end of the day. 

Suitable for beginners but prior experience of sewing can be beneficial, the course will introduce you to construction techniques and the methods needed to create a stylish clutch bag.

You will learn sewing techniques such as zips and attaching magnetic closures and will also get the chance to work on our industrial sewing machine.

You are free to use our patterns or even come up with your own designs! 

What To Bring

We know that buying leather and components can be a little overwhelming so we have the option for us to provide the materials for you for only £30, you can purchase the materials package here: clutch materials package

Or alternatively you are bringing your own materials. If you are buying new leather please make sure that it is not too thick, no more than 1mm. We have attached links of recommended new leather and component suppliers in London. If you want to use recycled materials the best places to source are ebay and charity shops. Look for old garments that you can deconstruct and use. We recommend that you bring with you all components and fastenings to finish your bag, we have a selection of basic zips and components in stock if required.
