I had a great day learning about leathercraft. The purse was simple but excellent for beginners. I learnt to use many new tools and new techniques in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Deborette is an excellent teacher and very patient. The pace was good and nothing seemed rushed. I went away knowing that I could tackle simple leathercraft projects and from there build up my knowledge of this craft.
