Learn how to make beautiful leather creations the Restrepo way, entirely by hand. Unlock the designer in you and develop the skills to take you from an idea to a finished product. This is a practical course, and you will walk away with a finished creation from your very first class. Learn from Restrepo Leather owner Jerry Tolochko, who trained under a master Colombian leather worker for three years in Bogota.
Classes can be arranged at a student's convenience. There can be anywhere from 2 to 6 participants in a class. Classes will be held in a nearby studio space in San Francisco, CA.
Normally, students will make two pieces during the course: one smaller accessory, and then a larger piece such as a small bag or more complex wallet. Course fee includes all supplies for the small beginning project, such as a bracelet, device case, or card wallet. An additional fee for materials might be applied for the second piece depending on its complexity.
