Handmade leather bag workshop

Paris, France

Experience hosted by Diane

4 hours
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 6 people
Hosted in French, English

What you'll do

No experience is required !!
I will explain the simplified process of making a handbag from three models in my workshop .

We will only use leather scraps from french leathergoods houses, thus participating in the circular economy.

First of all, you have to choose between three bag's shapes : one is a clutch bag, the other one is a purse and the last one is a season bag.
Then let's choose between the different leathers and colors of the precut pieces, and finally we will sew them with "point sellier" technique meaning saddle stitch. I will share with you every step of it !
You can customize your bag with your creativity and your imagination with eyelets, rivets or a tassel.

You take away your own unique handmade bag, personalized to your taste, having spent a pleasant time by yourself or with your friends !!!
Other things to note
My english is not perfect but I can discuss about my passion :)

An other new experience is open in my atelier :
Make your own ceremony clutch bag

Merci beaucoup Diane and helpful classmates! I sell women handbags as an entrepreneur, so this was a wonderful first time experience. Diane is an extremely detailed professional with great knowledge to share. Tout le monde était poli et sympathique. Je regrette que mon français ne soit pas super. Je dois m'exercer à parler en français. Ce fut un moment spécial pour rencontrer et travailler avec des gens passionnés ici. Diane a été extrêmement utile pour nous accompagner tout au long du processus. Merci pour la tasse de café! I have not used French in almost 10 years, but at least I understood 85% of the French used in this class. Very thankful for joining your très chic leather handbag class!

Everyone had a blast making their own purses. I didn't realize how difficult it would be for me personally since I am not used to working with my hands. My friends had a great time and would love to do this again when we are in Paris. It would have been nice to know the few options of bag types we were limited to creating in advance. Diane shared her Instagram account images with us and we were under the impression that we could make any of the styles that were capture but were not.
