Why join?

The Handbag Atelier is an online course platform for beginners wanting to learn how to make leather handbags and accessories by hand at home. In our bag making courses, you will get step-by-step instructions on how to make your item and you will learn about different types of leather and what are the essential tools that you will need at home. We have lots of different courses to choose from, from leather bags to accessories and wallets!

Bag making is for anyone wanting to learn a new skill. It's a great skill to know how to make your own handbags and you'll never want to buy another mass-produced bag on the high street again! In our tutorials, you will learn all the basics from cutting leather to saddle stitching to finishing the raw edges of your work to a professional standard. You will need some leather crafting tools but you won't need a sewing machine to make bags at home.


When you sign up to an individual course or a course bundle, you'll get access to an exclusive members' only area. You will have instant access to a detailed how-to-make video that shows each step from beginning to end as well as downloadable PDF handbooks and patterns. All our patterns are available in A4 so they are home-printer-friendly. You can log on at any time and work at your own pace. Alternatively, if you already have some experience in bag making and do not require detailed instructions, you can also buy just the bag pattern in our Shop.
