Many well intentioned people are literally wasting hundreds of hours and spending thousands buying the wrong tools, the incorrect leather and learning from the wrong sources.

No matter how hard you try, you aren’t getting the kind of results you want!

At first you may have improved rapidly, but like so many, your progress slows down fast.

Worse, not understanding where you should start or how to improve your skills is not just frustrating, but it’s also wasting your valuable time and hard earned money.

It’s not easy to enjoy the craft when you feel like your results have come to a standstill and you don’t have the knowledge to move forwardHow is anybody supposed to stay excited like this?

Luxury leathergoods build along projects

This is why the Leathercraft Masterclass was created:


To teach you the fundamental skills of fine leathercraft through a series of technique based and project based courses which turn these new skills into practical knowledge you can use right now.


By exposing secrets industry experts won’t share, you will open the door to a new world of leathercraft knowledge, bringing you the real results you deserve.

It’s easy to master the craft when you have a clear direction and a system of steps laid out for you to follow.

Get access to the Mastermind Forum group 

Access to a members only Mastermind group where you ask any questions you have about the courses. Discuss the projects, techniques and ideas. Receive support and guidance when you need it. This group is exclusive to Plan members and myself. If you need extra help at any point, I am simply a click away with professional guidance. 

So you can rest assured, you won’t get stuck with questions and nobody to ask - you don’t have to feel alone in your new adventure!

You can start your journey with more structure by watching the videos from course #1 ‘The Techniques Of Hand Stitching’ onward. 

This way you can begin honing your foundation skills before moving forward to courses where you can use these new skills in project based videos.

So as your abilities and your confidence grows, you will be able to take on new challenges and master new techniques.


Each new course reveals another new technique you can use in your leathercraft.

So you can keep adding a new skill to your ‘mental leathercraft library’ as you follow along. 

Which means you are guaranteed to be shown something new in each video and your growth never stops.



Watch your stitching improve.

From learning the saddle stitch, to creating perfect angles on both sides of the seam!

You will then put these skills into other techniques like edge binding, French binding and box stitching. This means you will see your stitching abilities finally come alive with all your questions answered.



Reveal the master edge finisher in you by viewing courses on glass edge burnishing, effortlessly smooth edge painting and of course the traditional turned edge. 

This gives you the power to choose which technique best suits your work, meaning you’ll have the skills to flawlessly finish your work to a masters level!


Witness your abilities turn leather into beautiful bags and cases with a new knowledge on hardware installation, piped seams, internal and external zips, linings, reinforcements (interlinings), gusset installation, pattern making and much more.

This will then allow you to execute what others believe to be advanced techniques - with ease!



Get a grip - on handle making!

Whether that be traditional ‘built up’ briefcase handles, rolled handles for bags and purses - or even trunk handles!

Find what your work has been missing as the techniques of beautiful handle finishing are finally revealed.

Allow your projects to show off your craftsmanship and attention to detail for the most important piece of a luxury bag.


Ever wanted to master wallet making?

From card wallets, coat wallets - even passport wallets, the Masterclass courses have you covered.

Reveal the #1 secret wallet making technique that luxury and boutique brands know about that skipped social media attention entirely! You won’t find this anywhere else online or in books.

Stronger, slimmer, simpler, more durable, with a much higher degree of finesse and accuracy - all in one go! (no kidding - see: ‘The Slimline Coat Wallet)

These courses contain years of intense focus, testing, improving and discovering better ways of crafting luxury leather goods:


But just like you right now, I wasn’t always able to do this!


I’ve learned directly from a leather case maker, indirectly from volumes of vintage leathercraft manuals and books as well as starting my own leathercraft brand: ‘Finch England’.

This successfully allowed me to earn a living from my craft for several years before I found my calling - teaching, and keeping this beautiful craft alive for future generations. 


This included making leather goods from scratch as well as buying, restoring and selling vintage luggage (a powerful learning experience alone!).

From these activities, I was able to generate volumes of notes over the years. Notes on what I have been taught, discovered and learned the hard way!

The Leathercraft Masterclass is an accumulation of this knowledge, boiled down to the best parts and the essential techniques, then presented in 1080p HD with clear and concise explanations.


Showing you not only what to do, but thoroughly explaining WHY you’re doing it (vitally important!).

And any time a specialist tool is used, a much simpler option with a widely available tool is demonstrated too - allowing anyone to use these techniques, not just the 'elite'.

 I'm the creative director of PanAm Leathers. I studied accessories design in Tel Aviv and in NYC, but I learned more practical tips from the first 20 min of your videos than all the years higher education combined, so thank you!

 I’ve been bingeing your courses like they are a new Netflix sitcom! I love them!


Carswell Leather

I bought the [6 month Plan] and have been blown away by the quality and high standard of Philip's teaching, leathercraft and video making skills.

It’s the best money I ever spent!


Elense Leatherworks

Most tutorials or videos on the Internet are leaning more towards rustic/semi-elegant stuff. It's virtually impossible to find someone from the industry that's been successful and is sharing his master knowledge.

How to construct projects and the order of things has been a big learning point. Satisfying to get that clear in my head.

There are things covered in every course that can be applied to any number of leather projects.

Edge painting is probably my favorite new skill I acquired.  Few can get a smooth and consistent edge all around.

There is a simple joy in holding a $600 handbag and seeing that your edge paint is better because someone took the time of teaching you the little tricks of getting it right.

Were the results of the courses going to justify the cost?

I have taken online and facing courses before that were a complete waste of money.

I feel that this was/ is WELL worth the cost!
