Bag Making Course

Miss Thacha, after studying various techniques and a unique style in her country from a trainer who graduated at Accademia Riaci, she decided to go to our school to attend our Master course in Bag Making. “I consider Florence as the heart of leather art where not only big industry and traditional artisanship is flourished, but also a place where I can learn and absorb everything around me, keeping my motivation and creativity high all the time”.
She also attended a semester course in Italian Language at ABC de’ Conti.
