This is the CraftJam you’ve been waiting for! Get ready to make your new favorite leather clutch, customized with your initials! This is the ultimate girls night CraftJam, and you get to strut home with a stylish clutch, just the way you like it.

You’ll be surprised how simple it is to make your clutch, using our specially created pattern, that requires no sewing. After this class, you will have created a beautiful, self-styled, custom clutch!


With the knowledgeable instructions of our JamMaster, you will learn everything you need to know, including how to:

  • Cut and assemble leather
  • Hand-stamp your initials on to leather
  • Customize and decorate your clutch
  • Take care of your final project
We’ve got all the materials you need, including an assortment of leathers, all the right leather crafting tools, and a leather stamping station. BYOB – crafting is paired best with your favorite drink of choice!

Question from Divya M.
Is there an option for using faux leather?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Divya! Typically, the clutch class only uses real leather. Real leather gives the clutch some stiffness and makes for a more sturdy end product. However, they DO have faux leather options on hand (from the other leather workshops), but they're not as stiff as the real leather, so the final product lacks structure! More like a pouch than a clutch. The bottom line, it's possible to make a clutch with faux leather in our class, but not what they recommended.

Question from elaine g.
Does the clutch include a wrist strap?
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Great question - the current pattern/design does not have a wrist strap. However, the front flap of the pattern provided to the students can be modified slightly, and the JamMaster will be able to assist them with utilizing scrap to add a wrist strap. The JamMaster also has some other tips for styling it as a shoulder bag.
Answer from Amanda P. Verified Student
No, it does not. BUT I'm willing to bet the instructors would consider your request if it was at all possible. You should definitely email them and see if it's possible!
Answer from Lisa J. Verified Student
When I took the class, the instructor was very helpful in walking me through adding tabs, to which I later added a chain I bought, to make it into a shoulder bag.

The class was fun and the clutches turned out great, but I think it could have been paced a bit better so that we had more time at the end to decorate our clutches.
