Daniela has a wealth of experience making hand-sewn and riveted bags for the last 12 years . She will share her knowledge on how to choose the right leather, how to produce an air tight bag from beginning to end, and how to solve the most common problems occurring when working with a natural material like leather. Participants will leave the course with their own finished bag (or given clear instructions on how to complete it, if under time constraints).
All tools and materials will be provided.
