    Candice was a really good teacher. This was the my first ever crafty thing I've done, and I really enjoyed it. I got stuck a couple times but thankfully the girl next to me helped me out loads. It was a very social and relaxed vibe and I really wanna try more crafts now.

    I had a lovely time making my leather wallet with my friend at Candice's workshop. The hammering was so therapeutic, the company was lovely and the atmosphere was really relaxed. Candice was even kind enough to pop the Royal Wedding on in the background as we were all chatting about it. I love my personalised wallet, thanks for a super afternoon!

    I went to this workshop with my friend and we had a great time. The hammering holes into the leather was so fun and surprisingly stress relieving. I thought Candice was a great host and a great designer - the leather bags in her collection are so stunning.It was such a great experience I highly recommend it.
