My dad is a leatherwork and craftwork professional with 25 years of experience who has made literally thousands of handmade leather goods, including bags, wallets, belts, and even winter shoes) He sells them in his own shop and online. He recently started to teach other people how to make leather goods on their own at home.

The course will follow you along all necessary steps of the process, including choosing the proper leather type and necessary tools, cutting, trimming, embossing, dying and varnishing the leather, stitching several layers of leather and inserting rivets and zippers. No single detail of the whole process will be omitted. The course features the downloadable pdf-files with the list of necessary tools with weblinks where they can be purchased.
