Handcrafting soft leather gloves is an old skill, going back to the middle ages, that has started to disappear due to the labour-intensiveness and the mechanisation of the glove making process. Only a few skilled professionals around the world are currently practising the art of making gloves by hand.
As a skilled specialist, I would like to carry on this beautiful meticulous craft, introducing the techniques to more people and carrying the tradition into the 21st century.
I have been working with some of the top academic institutions around the world, teaching the glove making workshop at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, London College of Fashion, Edinburgh College of Art, Kolding Design Institute, as well as Norwegian National Opera & Ballet and London Craft Week.
If you would like to learn hand-crafting beautiful leather gloves, below are the upcoming workshops open to public.
The 5-day intensive glove-making workshop is repeated as a week-long course at
Central Saint Martins Short Courses in London
at the end of June/beginning of July 2020.
From 29th June till the 3rd of July 2020,
