Leather working classes

Here at Restrepo Leather, we're crazy about leather working. Our origins go way back to when Robin and I first started taking classes from Cesar, back in Bogota. We decided to bring a little bit of that magic with us here to Madison, WI.

Now, you can learn how to make beautiful leather creations the Restrepo way, entirely by hand. This is a small-group, practical course, and you will walk away with a finished piece from your very first class.

At our last class, one student made a leather bracelet, and the other a suede-lined cellphone case. 

We have two options on offer: either a 3-hour leather working crash course, or a 3-session comprehensive introduction to leather working. 

We've already had our first class, and our next classes are from 6 to 9 pm on Thursday, February 5th and Monday, February 16th, at Wheelhouse Studios. If you're interested in the class, but those times don't work for you, send us an email and we'll figure out a time and date that works for you.

I personally think that its a marvelous opportunity you are offering. Especially for the artistic mind people who always prefer the hand work over machines. Keep it up.
