    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!

    The class was excellent - full of great info as well as fun. Bonnie was great teacher! She allowed us to be as creative as we wanted but was still able to shepherd everyone along so we actually finished whatever we chose to make.

    The class was a great introductory course and I was thoroughly pleased with the patients, and skill with Bonnie the instructor
  • Wallet Making Workshop

    Reviewed by Jim on 6/9/2017
    Course was described as teaching the "basics of working with leather", but the class really had very little to do with the material of the wallet itself. The class didn't explain anything about the materials, the tools, or general techniques available when making leather wallets or any other leather product. We focused more on sewing than anything else. This wasn't exactly what I was hoping to get out of the class, and I don't feel that this was an introductory leather class as described.
