Staff Blog≫ Bag Making -Summer Short Course

Hi, there! How are you enjoying your summer?

This time, we would like to share how our summer course students enjoyed
their summer with our bag making course.

They attended a 2 week bag making course from Nigeria, and from Japan.

Bag Making

The advantages of learning at Academy are: all the professors are top
level Italian artists and designers, and student-teacher ratio is kept
small (up to 8 students per professor) 

How special is it to have one of the best artists in Italy to tutor you in such a
close relation, semi-private!? Do not worry about not knowing Italian, there
will be an Italian/English interpreter to assist you so that you understand
every instruction.

The lessons proceed at the best pace for each student, in a serious, but
friendly atmosphere.

At first, the students hands were awkward, but soon enough they got the
knack of it and moved their hands very fast.

After the lesson, they went to visit leather goods shop or accessories shops
together with the professor.


Here are there works.
Can you believe that they are hand made by students without previous experience??

To a memory of Florence, the student added a message “made with Prof.Stefano.”
