體驗簡介

Step into a magical studio and learn one of the oldest crafts known to mankind! Craft your own professionally finished leather goods using the same premium leather, tools and techniques used in my work. You will leave with leather goods as made by you and personalised with your initials or a message - the ultimate souvenir to remember your trip to London! Whether you are leather curious or a serial hobbyist - this workshop will make a leather lover out of you!

We start by discussing my journey from lawyer to professional craftsman followed by a talk on the history of leather and its historical trade in London. We also have a comprehensive overview of tanning and current views on sustainability, ethics and welfare.

You have a choice of items you can select from (please see photos). These have been cleverly designed with a modern minimal aesthetic and are suitable for all abilities, ages and genders.

You will work on the chosen project(s) with individual attention given throughout the class and we will finish by packing the item to take home or to give as a gift.

During this workshop you will learn:
- Working with professional patterns
- Cutting leather accurately
- Punching holes (guests love hammering!)
- Shaping leather
- Use a professional heated tool
- Burnishing leather
- Using brass fittings
Other things to note
This experience is designed to be accessible for all therefore it's not possible to deviate from set items and we do not learn handstitching. Please arrive on time to ensure all guests have a great experience. I endeavour to, but it may not be possible to join this workshop after a delay of 10 mins.

Working as a solicitor in London, I yearned for a life free of commuting, offices, suits and computers. I travelled the world to learn from the best craftspeople and escaped the city rat race to become a professional craftsman.

I combine traditions from masters of English heritage with the elegance and finesse of fabled European brands to give you a unique take on the craft. My work is an eclectic alliance of colours and textures.

I have an international client list for my bespoke work and private lessons. I teach leather working to students at a secondary school to inspire and keep the craft alive. My work has won awards, has been exhibited at the Walsall Leather Museum in England and I've taught leatherworking to John Malkovich.

體驗地點

The workshop will be held at Cockpit Arts in Deptford which is an award-winning social enterprise and the UK’s only business incubator for craftspeople. Get a rare glimpse into a working studio and learn directly from a professional craftsman. Deptford is the new Shoreditch - a hidden gem with a bustling art scene designated as a Creative Enterprise Zone in London. Greenwich is walking distance and worth a visit after your experience.

This experience gives you a great background into the leather industry and then allows you to take that understanding and create something yourself. There are a great variety of items to choose to make and I was pleasantly surprised to find we were able to make as many in the time slot instead of a single piece. Yusuf was very knowledgeable and gave the perfect amount of assistance when learning the techniques. Would give this experience 6 stars if I could :)

We loved Yusuf's leather workshop and had a wonderful time working with leather, learning new skills and making some gorgeous souvenirs. I would highly recommend this experience. Yusuf is very friendly, patient and helpful. We would love to come back for another class next time we are in London! What can we make next Yusuf? 😊
