Last Saturday, 6thOctober, Proper Job and Green Shoes collaborated to hold their ‘Proper Leather Craft Workshop’, hosted by Green Shoes at their fabulous Moretonhampstead workshop.

Participants learned how to make unique purses, keyrings, and bracelets reusing the leather off cuts from shoe making. Children and adults attended and got creative with the colourful scraps, adorning their creations with appliqued leather stars and flowers, learning new skills and leaving with something truly original and beautiful.

‘Last weekend my daughter and I attended the leather working workshop –
it was fantastic! The instructors were enthusiastic and friendly, and we both learned new skills which we can use for our home craft sessions. We left the session on a high, with the beautiful purses that we had created. Well done to all the organisers involved in making it such a brilliant event, I’m now looking forward to the next Proper Job workshop!’
