Covid-19 update: We are open as usual :-)

From complete beginner through to advanced leatherwork projects we have a range of courses to suit your needs.

At J.H.Leather we believe in passing on our knowledge so that others can enjoy our passion for leatherwork. We offer 1:1 courses for any skill level, from complete beginner where we will learn to hand stitch leather in the morning and complete a project in the afternoon on a 1 day course, through to advanced crafters wanted to hone their skills. We periodically run group courses on set dates for a range of different skill sets and projects.

All courses are delivered in our workshop in Llanfyllin, Powys and are delivered on a 1:1 bases, ensuring you get the most out of your time with us. If you would like to bring a friend along to your 1:1 day please contact us and we can arrange a discounted rate for you both and organise what projects you would both like to complete.

The courses all run from 10 am to 5 pm and there is a break of 1 hour for lunch. Refreshments are included in the course but students will need to supply their own lunch (there are local eateries in the town a short 15 minute walk from the workshop or 3 minutes by car, there is a free car park in the town). 

There is a range of local accommodation available from staying at the Bunkhouse on site or to the beautiful Lake Vyrnwy Hotel located 11 miles away. On booking your spot on one of our courses we will contact you with an email showing local accommodation as well as how to find us. Please can you also let us know if you have any dietary requirements (for snacks and drinks). 

We are proud to have partnered with Abbey England who have supplied us with top quality tools for students to use on all our courses.

Measuring Guide

Ordering a bespoke dog collar or belt? Please read the measuring guide to ensure you order the correct size.

Dog Collars

When measuring for your new dog collar, the best option is to measure the internal length of a current collar adjusted to how you like it fitted. To do this, remove the collar from your dog and do it up at the desired fitting, then with a flexible tape measure measure around the inside of the collar. This length will be where the middle hole will fit on your new collar.

How to measure your dog collar
You can also measure around your dogs neck. Place the tape measure around your dogs neck where the collar will sit and to a tightness that you like.

We will use the measurements provided as the internal measurement and add 2 larger and 2 smaller holes for adjustment. 


The best way is to measure your current belt from the inside of the buckle to the hole that is used most. You can also use a tape measure and measure around your waist where your belt will sit.

We will add 3 larger and 3 smaller holes for adjustment.
