Workshop Structure

Our workshops run for 5 consecutive days from 10am to 4pm, with a 1-hour lunch break.

Day 1

On Day 1, you will select a design from our range of pre-developed bag patterns, and choose from our selection of beautiful leathers, we will also teach you about the different types of leather, reinforcements and hardware used in luxury bagmaking. We will also learn expert knife skills as you cut your pieces in preparation for assembling your bag.

Day 2

On Day 2, we will start by teaching you the expert hand-stitching techniques used by luxury bag ateliers. Once your lining has been prepared we will start the assembly process, using your new-found hand-stitching skills to start piecing together your bag. We usually start on the inside by adding internal pockets to the bag.

Day 3

On Day 3, your handcrafted bag will continue to take form as your skills progress. We will be working on top handles and adding any necessary hardware to your bag.

Day 4

On Day 4, your bag will continue to take its form, with a focus on additional pieces, specifically, removable or adjustable cross-body straps. 

Day 5

On Day 5, the final day, you will add the finishing touches to your work, and intricately paint your leather edges for a professional-looking finish.
