In November 2018 we hosted over 30 delegates on a day’s introduction to social media training course at the National Leather Collection in Northampton. 

This event was the inaugural meeting of UK Leather members in a series of workshops aimed at helping our members with their business challenges, and to enable them to network with others in the industry. The event went very well and our follow-up survey demonstrated the types of events that the delegates would like to see in the future.

We intend to run a workshop every quarter, and plans are underway with next year’s programme. This will include a seminar workshop on marketing tips for busy makers, a lecture for the designer maker, the opportunity to exhibit wares at a commercial trade show, the chance to attend a formal leather industry dinner at Leathersellers’ Hall and also to have a tour and seminar at the new Institute for Creative Leather Technologies premises next autumn.
