We start by discussing my journey from lawyer to professional craftsman followed by a talk on the history of leather and its historical trade in London. We also have a comprehensive overview of tanning and current views on sustainability, ethics and welfare.

Working as a solicitor in London, I yearned for a life free of commuting, offices, suits and computers. I travelled the world to learn from the best craftspeople and escaped the city rat race to become a professional craftsman.

I combine traditions from masters of English heritage with the elegance and finesse of fabled European brands to give you a unique take on the craft. My work is an eclectic alliance of colours and textures.

I have an international client list for my bespoke work and private lessons. I teach leather working to students at a secondary school to inspire and keep the craft alive. My work has won awards, has been exhibited at the Walsall Leather Museum in England and I've taught leatherworking to John Malkovich.

This was one of the most enjoyable Airbnb experiences I have ever had! The class was in a clean, comfortable space in a nice part of the city. With Yusuf's friendly demeanor and the tea he offered me upon arriving, I very quickly felt at home. Throughout the class, I learned a ton about the history and craft of leather working and I had so much fun, I plan to pick up this hobby when I get back home from vacation! Yusuf was an excellent teacher and just an all-around great person and I left the class not only with some awesome pieces but also feeling like I made a friend. I highly recommend this experience!

Yusuf's leather workshop was AMAZING. Immediately, you feel at home. In his beautifully organised studio, Yusuf kindly offered us coffees and teas (a tea that has now become my favourite!). His calming voice also added to the relaxing environment. He started off by giving a very interesting history on leathercrafts, on sustainability and on his journey, which added a personal touch. We then chose from a lovely selection of leather products and colours. His explanations and demonstrations were easy to follow, so despite being complete beginners, we were able to grasp the techniques and ended up making two items each! We really appreciated the time and passion Yusuf invested in his workshop - we left feeling more educated on the world of leather, inspired by his creativity, and proud of our creations. I would definitely go again, you’d be missing out if you didn’t!

This experience gives you a great background into the leather industry and then allows you to take that understanding and create something yourself. There are a great variety of items to choose to make and I was pleasantly surprised to find we were able to make as many in the time slot instead of a single piece. Yusuf was very knowledgeable and gave the perfect amount of assistance when learning the techniques. Would give this experience 6 stars if I could :)
