Welcome to Cape Leather Training

Where we teach skills and techniques with a passion for both leather and people. 

Are you seeking a strong foundation from where you can practice leather craft as a hobby for pure enjoyment or to establish an additional income stream by building a brand or business around hand-crafted leather items? If your answer is yes, you’ve come to the right place.

CLT presents training courses and workshops in our Cape Town (Bellville) studio. We also periodically travel across Southern Africa to make attendance of our 5-Day Essential Skills Course more convenient, accessible and affordable.

We are looking forward to starting this journey with you!
