COVID-19 Update : 15th April 2021

Following the Government's new 'roadmap' we can now happily announce that we will be reopening our Leather Workshops in May 2021. We are also extremely excited to also announce that we will be re-opening in our new Perivale London Studio which is three times the size of our old Workshop.

This means that you will have your own workstation and even when we are fully booked, there will be a minimum distance between each student of 3 metres (10 feet). And when not fully booked it could be as much as 6 metres (20 feet).

It also has fabulous natural light and through ventilation via double aspect windows on our first floor.

Set out below are our conditions of attending our Workshop Courses;

  1. If you are displaying any Covid-19 symptoms or have tested positive up to 3 weeks prior to your Leather Workshop, you must not attend. Please contact Richard at so we can reschedule your Workshop once you have the all clear. 

  2. On arrival at our Studio you will be directed to our washroom so you can sanitise your hands. 

  3. You can then scan our Studio QR code to assist with any track & trace.

  4. You will have your own workstation which will be a minimum of 3 metres (10 feet) away from each other for making your item.  

  5. If we are not fully booked then this distance can increase to 6 metres (20 feet) apart. 

  6. You will have your own set of tools to use which are sanitised before and after your use.

  7. At your own workstation you will have your own liquid sanitiser and sanitiser wipes to use.

  8. If you need to use any of the larger machines, they are also sanitised directly before and after your use, this worked perfectly well last year when we were open.

  9. We will also continue to use our large clear perspex screening which helps further with safely dividing the workstations.

  10. We have face visors available if you wish to use them and ask you to wear a mask if moving around the Studio.

  11. Our new Studio is naturally ventilated via 3 large double aspect windows for through ventilation, we are not linked to a larger building ventilation system.

  12. Last year we operated successfully in our small workshop, but for 2021 we’ve taken the big step in taking on this Studio which is 3 times the size of our old workshop so we all have so much more space to safely operate in. I hope these measures above show you we’ve done everything possible to make your Leather Workshop Course as safe a place as possible to work and very much look forward to meeting you.

Your teacher Richard, has also received his Covid vaccine.

In the meantime our website Workshop booking page remains open for you to book your place on any of our Leather Workshop Courses ranging from our Evening Class, our 1/2 day Small Leather Goods Course, our 2 Day and 3 Day Courses. Please do email us if you have any queries about booking.

You can also purchase our Workshop Gift Certificates which we can then post or email to you.

Thank you,

Richard Williamson
