Nikki Newcombe was delighted to host a Repair Workshop for Bliss of London saddlery fitters and stockist at the Walsall Leather Skills Centre.
The training facility has ample room for the eight learners who came from the UK, Netherlands, America, and Australia. The Centre provided all tools needed, including airlines and staple guns. The Bliss factory manager responded to the different learning aims and levels of experience. The Centre which is based right in the heart of Walsall was set up by the Saddlers Company Charitable Fund to support skills in the saddlery and leather goods trade, whether for those entering the industry, experienced staff gaining new skills, or to equip equine fitters to make small repairs and adjustments out in the field.
The Centre allowed Bliss to offer training to their fitters and stockists in a fully fitted out workshop, away from the distractions of the factory. Any individual who would like to attend a course at the Centre or a business that would like to run professional training for their staff are encouraged to get in touch via email@example.com
