What you'll do

We will start the workshop with a warm welcome in my home and a coffee/tea. I will then explain to you all about leathercrafting and the steps we will take during the workshop.

In the workshop, you will each be provided with a piece of leather and all tools necessary for making your specific leathercraft. Together, we will work step by step, me helping resolve any issues that you may have throughout the process, assuring you pay special attention to all the little yet important details necessary for creating a perfect piece. In the end, I will teach you how to carve your name or initials on leather, so you could create your own personalized brands on your unique products!

You will always leave the workshop with a handmade genuine leather bag. What you will take home depends on which option you choose starting the workshop:

1) You will design and create your own bag during the workshop. You can choose your leather from a wide variety of leather hides. You will take this product home!

2) You will go home with a bag I created on forehand. During the workshop, we will work on a trial piece of leather and follow all the steps as in option 1. The difference is that you will go home with a more professional, ‘complicated’ product (think about extra layers, zippers, pockets, lock mechanisms, reinforced handles).

NOTE: This workshop takes up to 3 hours if you create your own bag.

Hi everyone! I’m a young designer with a passion for the art of leather crafts! I’ve been working in the designing industry for years & have been amazed by leatherwork from day one! Due to my love for this craft, I started learning more & more, building my knowledge & increasing my experiences to become an expert in the field of leatherwork in the country of leather, Italy! :) I am here to share my passion with you and show you how a piece of raw genuine leather can be transformed into a unique piece of art!
