Questions & Answers (4)

Get quick answers from CourseHorse and past students.

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 Diego C.
Do you teach how to make purses?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hey Diego! In this class, they only teach how to make envelope-style clutches.
Question from anonymous
When would this class be offered again? Secondly, do you have a Friday or Saturday class?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! This class has two open sections scheduled for Friday, February 9th and Thursday, February 22nd. We do not have any other open schedules after those dates but you can save this to your Wishlist so you're immediately notified by email once the school adds new dates. Regarding Friday or Saturday classes - yes, the school used to open sections on those days in the past. Feel free to check back soon!
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.
