Do you want to learn how to make leather bags and accessories? The Handbag Atelier is an online leather bag making platform, aimed at complete beginners. We have taught classes in London and Helsinki, however because not everyone can travel to these locations, we have recently launched our online classes to make it possible for anyone to learn leather bag making at home. You do not need a sewing machine or other fancy equipment to take a class at home because all of our handbags and accessories are stitched by hand. You will need a selection of leather craft tools which can be purchased quite inexpensively although you can of course go for more high end tools if you want.
With our bag making classes, you get a pattern and a PDF guidebook showing each step of the making. There is also an accompanying video showing how to make the bag without skipping any steps. In the class you will learn all the necessary skills to make a bag and to work with leather, from cutting and finishing the edges, to hand-stitching.
When you sign up to a class, you also get access to a Forum where you can ask any questions related to leather and bag making. Especially as a beginner, there will be lots of things you might not know or understand about bag making, but our friendly community is there to help.
What is also great about taking a class from the comfort of your own home is that you can work at your own pace. We all know how life gets busy from time to time but with our online bag making classes, you can make your bag when it suits you. All the material can be downloaded to your computer but you can also access it online whenever you want.
