A nice atmosphere, well equipped, very friendly teachers, a nice selection of leather Unfortunately less Struktur in the lessons Too much option for the students, so nobody did only a tote bag, everybody had many extras as needed support

Lona was very friendly and patient with everybody. She was also very flexible with the designs and encouraged to try various design details. This class was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it.

Claire was a terrific teacher! She was very knowledgeable and I learned some new sewing tricks. It was nice to step out of my comfort zone and learn about shoe making. I love my espadrilles.

The class was so amazing - our instructor was so welcoming and patient. The quality of the leather and every other step of the process was absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend this class as a fun activity for a group of friends or just a way to try something new and different. And at the end of it you end up with great products too! :)
