TOOLS

I have created the option of adding tools to your workshop fee. I believe it's truly important to invest in your own set of quality tools, so that when you get back home you can implement the techniques into your workflow immediately. If you do not wish to purchase your own set of tools, I will allow you to use mine however, keep in mind that superior tools = superior products. If you're trying to achieve the same look using subpar tools, that we created during the workshop, you will not get the same results.

Student tool orders will be placed immediately after the workshop fee is submitted.

Overview

There are very few people in the United States who teach these high end leather working techniques. You do not have to be an expert to learn, as a matter of fact, what I'm teaching you are the fundamentals that would be taught if you were apprenticing under any luxury leather goods brand. During this workshop you will learn the traditional methods of hand sewing leather. It's my goal to make sure you leave my studio confident in your new skill set. The techniques that I'm teaching you have been used for centuries amongst master leather craftspeople. You will be instantly adding value to your work by learning my hand sewing techniques. You will not be limited by the sewing machine any longer, you will now be able to create that certain product you've always wanted to. 

Below are products I've created using these techniques.
