We train you to manufacture top quality genuine leather handbags, briefcases, travel bags, belts etc outside the formal factory workshop environment. It is a course in hand and not machine manufacturing.

This is not a basic leather craft course but can empower you to start your own leather business.

Individuals receive experiential training in our workshop training venue. This course is presented over ten intensive days.

During the course you will learn to make a top quality belt, a handbag and a range of assembly and design examples in learning the art of bag making.


I am happy to recommend the SA Leather Academy leather craft workshop offered by Frik van Jaarsveld. Im astounded at how much I learned in just two weeks. I started off as an utter novice and now I feel quite confident and competent to make beautiful things out of leather. The course is well thought-out and presented. It is instructive, hard work and good fun. It caters for those who want to make a career out of leather work and those who want to pursue it as hobby. Leather is a wonderfully versatile medium and one can do really amazing things with it. I want to thank Frik for introducing me to leather and teaching me to love it.
