We want everyone to experience the joy of crafting their own leather goods.

For those who prefer to craft along with friends and others, our workshops offer an enjoyable way to learn directly from an instructor in addition to the unique video instructions that are included with every DIY Kit.

We currently offer face to face workshops in Melbourne through our partnership with the Handmakers Factory. Scroll down to find our latest timing!

We offer two styles of Workshops

Product Focused

Want to craft one of our top DIY kits along with other people?

Our Product Focused Workshops centre on a specific DIY kit so that everyone will learn the same skills and leave the workshop with the same finished product.

Open Sessions

Just want to learn the basics that apply to any of our DIY kits?

Come along and learn the basics with an instructor. Then work on your kit knowing an instructor is on hand to answer any of your questions as they come along and show you the steps to take.

Workshop FAQs

Do I need to craft a J Tanner DIY leathercraft design?

Yes. We want to make sure everyone can easily follow along, so our workshops are focused on our J Tanner designs only.

If you are attending a face to face session we will provide the kit when you arrive!

I thought J Tanner DIY Kits included video instructions. Do I need to attend a workshop to craft my kit?

Every J Tanner Kit includes unique video instructions that you can follow and assemble at your own pace without a workshop. However, we know that everyone likes to learn differently, which is why we also offer workshops as an optional extra.

[Online Workshop] Is there a cut off time to order a J Tanner Kit if I want to attend?

If you wish to join one of our workshops, we recommend you place your order for your DIY Kit no later than 6pm on the Tuesday prior to ensure there is enough time for your kit to arrive. We ship every workshop kit via Express Post within Australia, however there can sometimes be unexpected delays. If your kit is delayed and you are unable to join our session we will reschedule to the next available time slot.

[Online Workshop] Can I change the date and time of my online workshop booking?

Absolutely! We know that things can often come up, so our online workshop bookings are completely flexible. Simply contact us via email or live chat and we can help reschedule to the best time.

[Online Workshop] I am buying this as a gift and I am not sure when the recipient will be able to attend.

No problem. You can purchase a workshop credit and when they are ready to book they can contact us, quote the order number and we will help find the right time for them! Contact Us to find out more!

I want to plan a private group session. Do you offer private workshops?

Yes. If you are intrested in a private session, please contact us either through the chat function or via our Contact Us page and we can let you know about pricing and time availability.
