About the instructor:

Growing up in the leather tannery was fun for Alec- running up and down the factory grounds, peeping across the leather milling drums, and getting down and dirty with the freshly tanned leathers from the wooden drums. Inevitably, leather became a big part of his life. With a passion in leather and handmade leather-craft, Alec would like to share the joys of leather craftsmanship of being able to create something beautiful yet practical, with the most basic tool: your own two hands.
