2018 Workshop Tutors : Deborette Clarke


Based in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, Deborette Clarke designs and makes small leather goods under the label B18 Leather.

Deborette Clarke is a fun loving creative who has many years experience as an educator, designer and maker. She began working with leather after attending a few workshops and deciding to experiment further by purchasing a pre-owned leather sewing machine.


Shapes are simple and colour is key with some pieces being hand painted using a variety of methods. The skin or hide is treated as a blank canvas for experimentation.

For Yarningham 2018 Deborette has designed a bespoke workshop for us where you can make your own leather purse.  Perfect for storing items for your latest stitch project or use it as a day-to- day pouch.
