Featured in Craftbusiness.com:
The Lincolnshire based specialist leather company, Abreption, announced the opening of its new leather work school this summer.
Abreption are a small, Lincolnshire company employing leather experts from the local area. They pride themselves on their bespoke designs and hand crafted products, made from English leather. The Abreption School will be running short courses to teach students all aspects of the trade: understanding leather; maintaining, renovating and working with leather; and how to create splendid bespoke leather bags.
The school is based in Grantham on the same site as the leather factory, with clean, modern training facilities. Courses are aimed at crafters of all abilities, and designers, footwear or garment technologists, sales people, customer services/quality managers and leather buyers will also benefit.
The first courses begin in July 2015, and will be taught by Amanda Michel. Amanda will bring not only her 35 years’ experience of working with leather to the lessons, but also her enthusiasm for the beauty and accessibility of the craft.
Abreption School classes are designed to give each student the best opportunity to learn, combining theoretical and practical demonstrations with hands-on crafting. To celebrate the opening, the Abreption School is offering prospective students a special introductory discount of 25% with the code ‘AM25’ – simply visit the website and enter the code at checkout. This is a fantastic chance to develop a new skill or further progress an existing enthusiasm.
