SA's number one leather crafting course
This leather craft course will enable you to start your own home based leather business. Even if you have never worked with leather, in just ten days we can teach you the manufacturing skills to make top quality genuine leather handbags, briefcases, travel bags, belts, leather smalls etc.
This is a course in hand and not machine manufacturing. You will learn by designing and making actual products – at least one hand stitched belt, one handbag, one briefcase or travel bag, a set of manufacturing examples and range of smalls. Training is very practical and done in an actual workshop.
The Academy has trained over 370 students from as far as Brazil, the UK, the USA and all over Africa and South-Africa over the past 7 years. Our unique course is based on the experience of Frik van Jaarsveld who has been doing leather craft work for more than 30 years.
We are in the scenic countryside of Joosternbergvlakte, just outside Cape Town.
