These are bags designed by our students over the last few weeks, they come from all over the world and from different walks of life. As instructors Linda and I are proud of each and everyone of them, the time and effort they put into each and every assignment is worthy of a standing ovation!

Each student designed and made their own patterns, starting with a sketch, then pattern and finally constructed their bag.The results are beautiful and original! Working together but yet as individuals in one of the most unique handbag making environments on the web they have truly taken the first steps towards their dreams. What's unique about our school?
