I learned everything I know about leather from Tim! I have taken three of his classes and highly recommend him to anyone interested in leather craft, be it just a hobby or a budding career. Check out his class schedule and enjoy!

"Some people say leather crafting is a dying art. At Alden’s School of Leather Trades we are devoted to keeping that art alive. We believe we must create new interest and pass along old traditions."
