WHAT IS THIS PRIVATE LEATHER COURSE ABOUT?
Are you looking for a creative and fun thing to do with your best friend, partner or family member? Or a gift experience idea for mum and dad or for a lovely duo who deserve a unique present?
You can book our leather craft course for two and bring whoever you like to learn the secrets of leather working together.
You can surprise your loved one with a personalised leather making course for two and bring home two finished items to remember the experience.

 

HOW DOES YOUR ONE TO TWO CLASS WORK?
This leather craft course for two is a unique way to spend some creative quality time with a loved one. Whether you are celebrating an anniversary, looking for a Saint Valentine or birthday gift idea or just want to do something different with a special person, this is a perfect way to relax, have fun and learn together!
You are able to customise the tuition to your needs by choosing the type of items you would like to make from the selection available and deciding your preferred day and time.
During this practical class, the couple will receive an overview of basic leather craft techniques and learn how to use essential tools while realising their own leather items to take home with them.
Interesting fact! Did you know that leather is the traditional gift to offer for a 3rd wedding anniversary? Leather effectively represents this stage of marriage because it is a strong, flexible and durable material and the 3rd wedding anniversary is often when a couple becomes most acutely – and reassuringly – aware of the durability of their relationship.

 

WHAT DOES THE COURSE INCLUDE:
The course includes the cost of the tuition and the private use of the whole workshop, tools and materials.

Our names are Sara and Melissa and we are the founders and owners of The London Leather Workshop.
With 20 years of experience in the field, we offer services in designing, prototyping and manufacturing of leather, vegan leather and fabric bags and accessories to national and international customers, from start-ups to established brands.
We discovered our passion for teaching while training people during our working careers in Italy and the UK and have been training students for the past ten years.
Through The London Leather Workshop, we teach our expertise, knowledge and skills to amateur leather craftspeople, people who have an interest in developing a career in this field, as well as professionals looking to improve their skill-set.
With a personal, friendly and flexible approach, we support students in realising a specific project or learning skills in a variety of subjects through both private and group classes.

Despite the end of Covid restrictions in the UK, we ask all our customers to be considerate when attending a meeting or a class at our studio.

Besides the disruption to our services that being impacted by Covid would bring us, some of us are also in the high-risk category with underlining health conditions that make Covid a threat.

The studio is a small and busy environment therefore, as it is very hard to keep social distance during classes, we ask all our customers to take all possible precautions.

COVID SAFETY MEASURES BEFORE AND DURING EACH CLASS:

– A negative lateral Covid test is no longer a requirement for our students before the lesson.

Nevertheless, we will keep testing daily and we would highly appreciate it if you could test before the class too.

– If you need to cancel your class because you tested positive or are showing symptoms, we will reschedule at the earliest convenience. In order to reschedule your lesson because of Covid, we will need to see proof of the positive test.
We would also appreciate it if you could reschedule your class if you have had contact with someone who has tested positive in the previous week.

– For everyone’s safety, we now require the use of a FF2 face mask covering both mouth and nose at all times, which we can provide on arrival if you don’t have one. If you are exempt we will need to see proof of your exemption, sent to us via email before the lesson. In this case, and in order to avoid others from feeling uncomfortable and maintain safety, it would be appreciated if you could use a face shield instead of a mask. We will provide this too, if you don’t have one.

– Hand sanitiser will be provided and everyone is required to use it on arrival. If you are allergic, you will be requested to wash your hands or to bring your own antibacterial product for your hands.

– Windows will be left open to allow for air circulation, please make sure to be dressed accordingly in winter.

– Food and drinks will need to be consumed outside of the studio.

– Surfaces will be cleaned before and after each lesson.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation in prioritising everyone’s safety in this complex time.
