LEATHER CLASSES

We have decided to adopt a more flexible approach to our classes and leather projects. In the past, we have found that a lot of people have been unable to attend our structured classes during the week due to other commitments. In order to allow more people to join us, we have adopted a 'project-based' approach rather than a 'time-based' approach. This means, anyone can come to our centre and create what ever project they like, during the time they have available. The cost of the project will not calculated based on length of time to complete, only on materials used. So takes as long as you need to finish the perfect creation.

We do run the traditionally time-based structured classes, however; they are usually run over a weekend or more, and require a minimum number of participants prior to the commencement of the class. For more information, please contact us and enquire about these classes.

We encourage people to bring a loved one with them and create a project together. This way you are creating a life-long memory along with a one of a kind, hand-made leather item.

 

The images below represent a very small example of projects that can be taught here at BOOTSTRAPS. We encourage you to think of other ideas or projects. Leather work is limited only by the imagination. If you have a specific idea for a project, we are more than happy to discuss this with you and help tailor exactly what you want.
