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.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SERVICE IS RESERVED FOR OUR STUDENTS.
YOU MUST HAVE ATTENDED A MINIMUM OF A THREE DAY COURSE OR 12 HOURS AT OUR STUDIO AND RECEIVED AN INDUCTION ON THE MACHINES AND TOOLS TO BE ABLE TO RENT OUR FACILITIES.
– A BIT MORE DETAIL –
TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
When hiring our facilities, we are happy to provide you with some assistance in case of problems with the machines, but you will have to be independent while practising/working.
We will not be able to assist you with your project.
Our workshop hiring service works on a pay as you go basis, without any subscription or extra fees and is available from a minimum of just two hours.
Machines and space are available to rent on weekdays from 9am to 7pm.
SPACE & EQUIPMENT:
The space is provided with three cutting tables, industrial sewing machines, various tools and a selection of about 100 to 200 different leather skins (variable depending on the time of the year), that can be purchased at a discounted price when renting our facilities (5% off all full priced leather).
Our studio, measuring about 40 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 2 people if you work in a team) and you would only be sharing the space with us.
You will be given the full use of a cutting table measuring 100x80cm and will be able to use the machines and tools available.
You can find the complete equipment list below on this page.
The rental is charged at £18 per hour and it includes the use of the machines, tools and a cutting table.
Rental availability is usually between 4 and 8 hours weekly in total.
Waiting time for renting usually varies from 3 to 5 weeks depending on how many hours are required and how busy we are during that time of the year.
HOW TO BOOK AND PAY:
You can book your session at our studio by emailing us, providing your full name, phone number and specifying how many hours you would like to rent a space for and what machines and tools you will need to use.
We require the payment to be made upfront and we will generate an invoice for you after receiving the information specified above.
We strongly advise you to carefully read all the information on this page in order to have a clear understanding of our terms, thank you!
*This equipment is not included as standard when renting any of our facilities, but can be purchased for an additional small fee. Please contact us when booking in order for us to reserve the equipment you need.

Would 100% recommend booking with the London Leather Workshop. My partner and I spent a fantastic day with Sara, learning the basics of leather craft and came away with two products we were really proud of. Sara was highly skilled and professional, an excellent teacher with interesting and practical tips, but also so lovely to work with. She went above and beyond to make the experience as full and enjoyable as possible and even helped us do some of our own designing! Whether you’re a beginner or have lots of experience, London Leather Workshop is the place to go and we’ll definitely be back!! Read Less

I can not recommend The London Leather Workshop highly enough. Sara and Melissa are incredibly talented, passionate designers and generous, supportive, student-focused uber-patient teachers who made the day a relaxed, stress-free experience. It was so much fun learning the technical skills and craft of leatherwork with the bonus of leaving with a finished practical bag. Whoo hoo, she's a beauty; thank you so much. The biscuits were great too. Read Less

Thanks very much to Sara and Melissa for such an enjoyable and informative day. I did the 'Introduction to Leathercraft Skills' course and it was excellent. Really informative and included learning and practicing several techniques which I can now take away and use in my workshops. Nothing was too much trouble and the day flew by in the well equipped workshop. Sara is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of leathercraft, design, product development and production techniques so any start-up would benefit from her input. Great day!!! Brian Read Less
