Who we are and what we do

GDH Leather Courses is Pembrokeshire’s original leatherwork course provider.

We offer professional courses in traditional leatherwork which are run by Gaynor Davies-Howell of GDH Leatherwork Ltd.  We have been running one-to-one and group courses since 2010. Our previous and popular, Leather Bag Making Course has been featured in ‘The Guardian’s ‘Do Something‘ supplement, on The Lady Magazine website, and in many popular national and local magazines. For your added reassurance, we also have some very happy students who have left glowing *reviews at the bottom of each course page.

We’ve changed the way we work

Our courses, once run from an old village chapel in Pembrokeshire, now take place online with student numbers reduced to just 3 or 4 per course. We still offer professional and friendly leatherwork courses and continue to provide knowledgeable tuition in a stress free and friendly manner.
We also offer 1-2-1 online tuition and mentoring so just get in touch if you’d like to know more.

How Does Online Tuition Work?

Our live, online courses are always tutor-present whether it’s a group course, or 1-2-1 tuition.  We work using professional video equipment to make your course experience the best it can be. Each course timetable allows ample time for students to practice the skills being taught, and opportunities to ask questions throughout. The courses are perfectly suitable for complete beginners and we’re happy to advise if you’re not sure. Just drop us an email and we’ll get straight back to you, ready to answer any questions you may have.

What are the Benefits of Online Tuition?

Aside from not having travel or accommodation costs, the most obvious benefit is that learning can take place in your own workshop provided you have reliable access to the internet. To ensure that you are able to fully engage with the course, your tutor will advise you beforehand which tools and materials to purchase, where necessary.
