Who we are and what we do

GDH Leather Courses is Pembrokeshire’s original, professional leatherwork course provider since 2010.

We  offer traditional leatherwork courses run by Gaynor Davies-Howell of GDH Leatherwork Ltd.  We have been running one-to-one and group courses since 2010. Our 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 plenty of very happy students who have left glowing reviews at the bottom of each course page.

Peaceful Places

We are located at the foot of the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire, West Wales and offer one, two, three, and four day professional leatherwork courses which are equally suitable for both men and women.  Our courses, once run from the old village chapel, now take place in a smaller workshop though still in the village of Penffordd.  And of course, we still have generous workspaces, friendly, knowledgeable staff, good company and great reviews; why not come and join us for a day or two spent learning the skill of traditional leatherwork?

We run a variety of leather courses ranging from a beginners one day Introduction to Leatherwork, to a four day Open Course. Perhaps you’d like to try something artistic such as leather sculpture on our one day leather Mask Making course, or come along to our hands-on Leatherwork Weekend Taster course to experiment with leather workers’ tools and techniques.

If you’re thinking of coming along on your own, don’t be concerned as you can be assured of a warm welcome. And with two tutors assistanting on many of our courses, you can also be assured of plenty of support and encouragement during the course.

If you like the idea of spending a creative weekend with a small group of friends, then just get in touch as we can offer one, or two day group bookings either during the week, or at weekends.

Many of our leather courses are 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.

And to make things really easy, we’ve answered all your questions about the local area and have even listed our favourite local B&B’s, Guest houses and hotels

Hope to see you soon
