Join us as a group for this intermediate bag making workshop and learn how to make your own leather accessories with award winning textile artist and leather bag designer Lee Mattocks from Mattocks - Handmade in Nottingham. Lee also lectures in fashion design and specialist skills at Nottingham Trent University so you will be in good hands throughout the workshop and receive lots of advice and support. During this morning or afternoon workshop you will make a designer bag from the Mattocks range and you can choose between a range of colours and styles or mix them up if you like to make something really unique! Most people do and make something truly individual that they will treasure for a lifetime. You will learn about innovative pattern cutting and how to fold and attach all the leather fittings and fixtures such as buckles, rivets and studs. You don't need any previous experience for this workshop as you will be guided through the processes step by step with leather specialist using innovative new techniques to make a contemporary bag to last a lifetime. After purchasing a group ticket we will contact you to discuss dates and styles of bag that you would like to make in your group.

Care Instructions

Caring for your bag is simple. Any soft wax or clear wax
leather polish can help keep your bag safe from the elements. Should you spill
any liquids onto your bag you can simply wipe your bag clean with a damp soft
cloth. The leather is very durable and can be cleaned in this manner.  As with all leather, try not to get your bag
completely soaked in water, but if this happens simply allow the bag to dry
naturally and not with direct heat.
