THE LONDON LEATHER WORKSHOP

 

– OUR WORKSHOP EQUIPMENT HIRING SERVICES –

 

We understand that, when starting a new project or gaining new skills, people do not necessarily want to invest in buying the entire range of tools and machines needed.
That is why we give the possibility to our students of hiring our range of machines, tools and some workspace inside the studio.

 

NOT A STUDENT OF OURS?

 

Of course, everyone is welcome!
When hiring for the first time, we require you to have a two hour induction, so that you can then work independently and safely.
This service is charged at a standard hourly rate of £26 per hour.
Our studio, measuring about 30 sqm, is an intimate space where you can focus on your own work without any distraction. In fact, we only allow one visitor at a time (or max 3 people if you work in a team) and you would only be sharing the space with us.
