Handmade bags course in Florence
2.500€ – 5.000€
This is a professional, long- or short-term leather-working course (108 hours in 12 weeks or 48/80 hours in 4 weeks). Each trainee, personally followed by the master-craftsman himself, acquires skills in leather-working through the creation of a specific article, normally a bag, entirely by hand and without a sewing machine. Trainees use only traditional craft tools – cobblers’ knives, awls, needle and thread, performing all stages of cutting, piercing, making up and hand-sewing the different strips and trimmings, in the process developing their manual abilities to match their own personal creativity. At the end of the course they will be able to make their own personally designed bag. All materials are included. Courses start every Monday (except during August).
