  • Level(s) of study: Short course
  • Study mode(s): Short course
  • Location: City Campus
  • Starting: 21 July 2021
  • Course duration: Wednesday to Friday, 10 am - 4 pm, three days

Using creative teaching techniques and clear, step-by-step guidance you’ll unravel the process of glove making with leather, a skill that’s traditionally thought of as difficult to master.

With only six places offered, this course provides you with one-to-one attention to ensure you leave with the skills and knowledge to continue glove making as part of your profession or purely personal enjoyment.


This course is suitable for those who are interested in craft and accessory design who’d like to extend their skills.

It’s also good for those working in fashion wanting to know more about accessories, as well as theatre costume makers.

It’s also ideal for teachers and technicians who want to add a unique skill to their repertoire.

What will I gain? 

By the end of the course you’ll have a completed pair of leather gloves (and maybe more in development) along with technical notes about materials and processes.

Tutor Profile: Vajira Peiris teaches both concept development and technical approaches to accessory design and woven textiles at Nottingham Trent University.

Indicative maximum class size: 6
