Join our 1-day ‘Learn & Create’ workshop on the rise of sustainable leather and create your very own vegan leather satchel.

Learn the history of leather production, and the damage worldwide consumption of leather has on the environment, before exploring the amazing opportunities new fabrication technologies hold for the industry and the sustainable brands out there you need to know now.

This will follow with a hands-on practical session where you will create your own sustainable leather satchel in our design studio.

This course runs at our Melbourne CBD Campus.

You will then commence work on creating your own small satchel out of vegan leather.
