This past weekend I took a road trip to Chicago for the Leather Work 101 class held at The Chicago School for Shoemaking and Leather Arts. This two-hour class was truly an amazing experience.
I loved the creative atmosphere of the studio. It was very open and inspiring. The class sizes are small which I truly appreciated. Our instructor, Breanna, was very patient and great at explaining the process. She did a great job helping us bring out our creative side.
In this class, we were given the option to create a cuff bracelet, a clutch purse, a belt or a key ring. I chose to make a clutch purse. Despite my hesitation, this was really fun to make. The school provides all the tools necessary to complete your projects and make them beautiful. Again, Breanna was an excellent instructor and very attentive to each person and their individual projects.
If you’re ever in the chicagoland area or looking for a reason for a quick road trip, I would highly recommend the Chicago School of Shoemaking & Leather Arts. I’m definitely going to signup again and I may even check out the Shoemaking class next.
