What you'll do

In the beginning, I welcome you to my home where the workshop will take place. We’ll then get to know each other better, chatting over a cup of tea or coffee :)
The workshop starts with me explaining about leather and introducing the basic tools required for leatherwork.

You will each be provided with a piece of leather and all tools necessary for making your specific craft of choice.

Together, we will work step by step, me checking every step to assure that it has been done perfectly and help resolve any issues that you may have throughout the process, making sure that you pay special attention to all the little yet important details necessary for creating a perfect piece.

The workshop will be finalized by me teaching you to carve your name on your individual creation and thus, creating your own personalized brands on your unique products!

The diversity in the final products of this workshop and the fact that other participants may be making different handicrafts, gives you the chance to witness varied crafts being made on the same day & to become somewhat familiar with each. It will no doubt broaden your horizons, introducing you to a wider range of concepts & a whole new unlimited world of unique creations to come!
If the timetable doesn’t work for you, message me & we’ll come up with something that does!

Hi everyone! I’m a young designer with a passion for the art of leather crafts! I’ve been working in the designing industry for years & have been amazed by leatherwork from day one! Due to my love for this craft, I started learning more & more, building my knowledge & increasing my experiences to become an expert in the field of leatherwork in the country of leather, Italy! :) I am here to share my passion with you and show you how a piece of raw genuine leather can be transformed into a unique piece of art!

This was a wonderful experience and it was so great to spend our evening with them. I can definitely recommend this to anyone and I fully believe this is great value. They really took the time to make sure we learned, understood and left with complete items. Loved it! Thank you so much :)

De workshop is echt super leuk om te doen! Je bent creatief bezig en Emma legt goed uit wat je moet doen en helpt waar nodig. Ondanks dat wij heel erg uit liepen met de tijd, bleef ze rustig alles uit leggen en nam daar ook de tijd voor. Dat was erg fijn. We zijn naar huis gegaan met twee prachtige tassen! Dankjewel Emma :)

Emma and her boyfriend Hossein welcomed us in their magical home for this unique experience. We really liked how welcoming and friendly they are. If you’re into fashion, crafting and a cup of coffee (or tea) surrounded by a cute environment, head there!!!

Awesome! We came with the expectations that we were building a bag with a design they choose. However, they took the time for us, explained the techniques, showed different designs. Decide what kind of leather we wanted to use for our bag, the size. Everything! They took so much time for us to explain every step of the process. Explaining the desired end result. We had a great day and we both have a great bag. It really blew us away.
