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!

Lovely to be part of working with the skin and making little items to take home with you -both useful and as a souvenier and good memory of your time in BA. A great little workshop with fantastic leatherwork and a very friendly host.

Incredible experience, incredible value. Leo guides you through the process of making leather goods. You leave with pieces made by your own hands. The entire experience is an exceptional value. Thanks Leo!
