AT THE ELVIS & KRESSE WORKSHOP
If you have ever wanted to design and learn how to make your own luxury accessory then our workshop experience is an event you don't want to miss. Elvis & Kresse would love to welcome you to their workshop in Tonge, Kent. Tonge Mill, the home of Elvis & Kresse, is an incredible piece of history originally built in 1837 and restored by Elvis & Kresse in 2013.
The Elvis & Kresse Fire & Hide Collection combines stunning rescued leather with our signature decommissioned fire-hose. We rescue leather off-cuts from the production of Burberry leather goods and have a 5-year partnership with the Burberry Foundation with the aim of changing the future of leather waste. We have designed a lego-like system which allows us to transform small, seemingly unusable leather pieces into whole new hides.
We hold different workshops throughout the year, the dates of which you will find above. On the day you will have a wide selection of leather colours and textures for you to choose from. You will learn how to design and assemble your very own piece. Whatever colour or pattern you choose, it will be entirely your own. The crafts team at Elvis & Kresse will then finish your piece and send it out to you in our wonderful reclaimed packaging. If you would like to combine your workshop with an overnight stay, please do let us know. We will happily help you to find local accommodation.
This amazing experience makes an incredible gift too. It includes a light lunch, a chance to meet Elvis & Kresse and a genuine behind the scenes experience with sustainable luxury pioneers.
50% of the profits from our rescued leather collection is donated to The Fire Fighters Charity and Barefoot College.
