PIHKA bag making course

In the PIHKA bag making course, you get to try traditional leatherworking and make a leather bag yourself with the help of our design professionals. Don’t hesitate to join our courses even without prior experience in leatherworking – we will guide you through all the phases of the work. In addition to fun memories, you will take home a self-made bag that is ready for a life-long journey.

In the PIHKA bag making course, one bag pattern creates three different bags: a backpack, shoulder bag and a shopper. You can choose which one to make!

The bag made in our bag making course is roomy and perfect for everyday use. The bag measures approximately 40x35x10 cm (height, width and depth). You can make the straps any length you want and sew an inner pocket, if you wish.

Your bag’s materials will be selected from our wide stock of different coloured leathers. You can choose any leather that is suitable bag making. The straps are made from vegetable-tanned leather, as in all PIHKA bags.

Our shoe making courses are held in PIHKA Workshop and Boutique in the centre of Helsinki.
