What you'll do

At the beginning I will welcome you to my home where the workshop is to take place.

We will then get to know each other better, chatting over a cup of tea or coffee :)

The workshop starts with me explaining about leather and introducing the basic tools required for leatherwork.

You will each be provided with a piece of Real and Natural Hide and all tools necessary for making a unique Natural Hide tote Bag or a nice laptop/tablet sleeve.

Together, we will work step by step, me checking every step to assure that it has been done perfectly and help resolve any issues that you may have throughout the process, making sure that you pay special attention to all the little yet important details necessary for creating a perfect piece.

The workshop will be completed by me teaching you to carve your name on your individual creation and thus, creating your own personalized brands on your unique products!

You leave my workshop with a cute Hide tote Bag or a nice laptop/tablet sleeve that you’ve made from scratch! :)
If the timetable doesn’t work for you, message me & we’ll come up with something that does!

I would highly recommend Alex's experiences, he knows what he is doing and helps out as often as he can. Alex was fantastic at accommodating my partners request for a handbag and we have 2 beautiful leather bags from the experience! Just beware if you are asking for a tricky piece, the experience can last longer than originally intended, so be careful of what you have planned later.

It was our first experience working with leather and Alex was very thoughtful and patient with us! Alex is passionate about crafting with leather and also cares deeply about sustainable and responsible use of natural skins. We had insightful conversations about these issues as we worked at our crafts. As my husband came along but would not have use for a tote bag, Alex was very flexible and customised a little sleeve for Aaron’s Ipad. Aaron and I made a few mistakes along the way, but Alex was very patient and managed to turn them into beautiful crafts. Would definitely recommend this!

Alex is hospitable, patient and precise in his directions which are excellent traits for an instructor. A variety of skins/leathers were offered, including various colors. The result was a bag that was genuinely made in Bologna (even if by me!) and with materials of my choosing, including my initials embossed. Is a great gift for others too.
