About the Instructor:

Sean Aquino has been making leather goods for seven years. He runs the blog and website FineLeatherworking.com, which has been the go-to resource for advanced tools, materials and luxury leather craft inspiration since 2012.

*Each workshop day ends at 5pm, but Sean will help ensure that you can master these techniques by giving you extra time each day. If you are struggling but have the endurance to keep going, he will stay and coach you, 1:1 if necessary, until you feel confident. During one past session, his students did 9 hours on the first day and 10 hours on the second day. It was marathon, but they had some amazing work to show for it.
