Creative workshops

One of Matlock’s hidden gems is offering people the chance to learn to be creative.

The Identity Store, in Holt Lane, which specialists in leathercrafts is hosting workshops enabling people to learn how to make things out of the material.

The workshops cover themes such as making a quirky leather birdhouse to embossing a leather belt.

They are usually held at the business’s premises in Matlock, however the store does go out to groups by special arrangement.

This month it will be wreath making with Stretton Women’s Institute.
