For the last 3 months, I was a full time student at Scuola del Cuoio in Florence, Italy. I spent 6 hours a day under the instruction of two master craftsmen in leather handbag production, alongside 18 other students from all around the world. The rest of the time was spent exploring the city, other areas of Italy, museums, building relationships with my international classmates and learning a new way to live (in a foreign country)....
For the sake of rest, travel and learning, I've decided to hit pause and close shop from September through December.

This summer marked the send off of my apprentice of 3 years, Lucy. What a pleasure it's been to have worked alongside her; learning as much as teaching.
