HMDH Academy Student creations!
These bags were designed by our students over the last few weeks! They come from all over the world and from different walks of life. Student designed and make their own patterns, starting with a sketch, then pattern and finally they make their bag.
The results are beautiful and original! HMDH Academy is one of the most unique handbag making environments on the internet. We help students take their first steps towards their dreams.
Our Facebook group is growing and we want it to grow even more! For that we need you!
I encourage all of our students to head over and get involved, you'll learn a lot and have some fun too! We have a great group and really great discussions that will enhance the learning experience at HMDH Academy!
For those just visiting, head on over and see what we are talking about, join the discussions! If you like talking, making and designing your own handbags then you will love our Facebook group!
"www.howtomakeadesignerhandbag.com teaches members how to price work, how to make patterns and design all types of handbags. Two accessories designers have developed the website-Richard and Linda Manigault-I recommend it to everyone involved in accessories. You will learn as much there as you would taking classes at any school."

What our students say about our courses :
Have you ever been lucky enough to have a teacher who went out of his/her way to help every student, in every way? I never did – till I joined https://hmdhacademy.com/ and met Richard Manigault and his lovely wife Linda Gentile Manigault. Even though I am on a timeout from the school due to work, Richard immediately sprang into action to help me find a piece of equipment I really need. Bless you, Richard! You are a gem amongst men
“I really think that since I began to attend your school, I made great progress, because I learned from this bag experience that the design and the pattern are everything.”
” Hi Richard, I’m so happy I found your class and I’m hoping I learn all there is to know about making handbags and understand it all”
Well done Martha! Like every one, the consistency in design and combination of the different elements in this bag made it a successful endeavor. Congratulations!
What I love about HMDH, is that it enables us to take our designs to the next level. But for our mentors to help us be better, we must overcome our fears of critiques and the need of acceptance of our work. That is why we don’t teach design here. We focus on techniques, tools of the trade and problem solving methods so we can be our own creative self. Richard and Linda helped me to be where I am now in spite of my stubbornness and incessant questions about everything. I love to hear about your journey with each bag you make Martha.
Mary, I agree with you, that is why I am taking the course. I want to learn how to make my own designs and have my own say with a pattern if I buy one. I have a lot to learn. Hahaha! I am looking very forward to seeing more of your course assignments. You make a very professional looking design!
Hi Lori, Welcome!! I’m loving this place!! Learning a lot and the people here are awesome. What part of S.Fla are you in?
Thank you so much Richard. I did enjoy the experience. IMO, there is nothing more frustrating than having wonderful ideas come to mind and not have the skill set to bring them to life. I feel that I’m in the right place and it’s the right time to develop the skills and with that the confidence to make beautiful things.
