Want to try your hand sewing with leather? We’ve got JUST the workshop for you!

Leather purse class cost £45

Come along to the Sew Confident Dundee Studio for an evening learning how to make a leather coin purse with Jude Gove.

Using soft leather and pure wool felt, Jude Gove will take you through all aspects of making your own coin purse. Choose your leather, cut out your design and stitch it all together using simple hand sewing techniques. All materials and refreshments are provided for this class so you can just show up and get stitching!


Working from her home studio, Jude creates individually designed and handcrafted genuine leather and pure wool felt accessories. Each purse, clutch bag and wallet is cut and stitched by hand, with an emphasis on simple practical shapes, exquisite colour combinations and high-quality materials.

Using the landscape from both home and her travels as her colour palette, she sources genuine soft leather hides and pure wool felt in contrasting colours. Jude works entirely by hand - from making patterns, to cutting the leather and stitching each piece together.

Her aim is to create simple and functional yet beautiful products, which will last a lifetime.
