Loved this class! Be prepared for it to go over schedule, working with leather is way more complicated than I thought! Even though it went over I had a BLAST. This is such a fun class in an inviting space :) I will be coming back for more

Had a blast- The instructor was very nice, informative, patient with our questions and helped me fix the small mistakes I made. The studio was super cool and also welcoming! There were a couple of different patterns to offer options of different wallets. I love how mine came out and can’t wait to give it as a gift and boast about my handiwork!

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.
