You can participate in the process or just observe how your choice leathers become in beatiful and usefull products that you´ll have for many years.
During the workshop, I´ll talk about the leather work in Argentina and answer questions. You´ll have drinks to election.

This was a truly great experience that I recommend for anyone visiting Argentina, or even anyone like me who has lived here for years and wants to experience a genuine leather-working workshop. Leo and his team went above and beyond to make it personalized, fun and rewarding. I'm already planning to go back for future workshops. Thank you, Leo, for an awesome experience.

Leo is a great host with tremendous experience in leather industry. This is a very hands-on experience and Leo would try to involve me into every steps of the process. Leo was so thoughtful to prepare some light breakfast before the workshop begins as nothing is open on Sunday 8am at Palermo. I would 100% recommend this workshop to my friends.

This was an incredible experience. Leo keeps the class size small making it a deeply personal and customizable experience. We got to make 3 different items, choosing leather color and cut. I recommend this to everyone!
