A throughly enjoyable experience. The school is conveniently located, close to Old Street underground station, and easy to find. After a warm welcome I met the other students, a really nice bunch, and found a seat at the spacious work table. The instructor was very experienced and patient and I simply could not believe that I was able to create such a cool leather piece on my first attempt - I am an artist but do not consider myself "handy" at all, so this came as a pleasant surprise and shows just how well thought-through the course is. Highly recommended!
