Scuola del Cuoio offers 5 days experiences to anyone who’d like to be a Florentine Artisan for one week. In these special workshops, held by our Master Craftsmen, participants can make a bag choosing from different styles of our Classic Collection

The same bag will be made by the Master in any kind of leather our guests will choose. In this way, participants will be able to follow the Master Craftsman in the process to make the bag step by step and finally will leave with two bags: the one they made and the one made by the artisan.
