We recommend BLC leather courses as these provide a greater understanding of the leather making process.

Delegates will be shown the various ways that leather can be finished, whether to improve performance or to create fashion effects. The course will combine some theoretical aspects with practical finishing workshops - where delegates will be given the opportunity to colour match and finish their own leather and take the samples away with them. This course is ideal for designers, product technologists and quality control staff.
