Golden Bear Belts founder Louise Middleton trained in Ceramics at Camberwell School of Art and worked in the fashion industry for over 15 years. She set up Golden Bear Belts in 2009 and sells her collections at Liberty, London and worldwide boutiques. Louise also runs leather crafting workshops and we are thrilled that she will be returning to The Good Life Experience in 2018 for the third time with her hugely popular workshops.
At the festival Louise will teach the basics of leather crafting and a range of surface decoration methods; how to emboss, stamp, scribe, cut, hand paint and gild. She will run belt workshops for adults, and for children there will be classes to make leather eye patches,wristbands for superheroes and pouches for foraging in the woods.
