Small school but great instructors

I took a 4-week summer course last year and the overall experience was excellent. The school is very small but the instructors are very professional and helpful. We were only 5 students, so we could work well and follow our individual projects. I can now understand the difference between a high-quality leather product and a bad one.

The shoemaking instructor was amazing!

The shoemaking teacher Mr. Angelo was really amazing. We studied in a small group so I could ask several questions to the teacher. Furthermore, the school is located in an excellent location near the Duomo of Florence. Although the course was not really cheap, I would highly recommend this class if you have an interest in learning the traditional Italian shoemaking process. Totally worth it!!!

Home cooking in Florence

Classes were held outside the city center, but the teacher was very nice and together with the other participants we learn some delicious traditional Italian recipes. The best thing is that you can eat what you cooked during the class.

An amazing experience in the heart of Florence

The school, located a few steps to the Duomo cathedral, was small but this was a must, as I could study and practice leather art in avery cozy environment together with other three students. The teacher taught me how to create my original leather bags, starting from my own sketches. I highly recommend this school.
