My name is Suranat Buranapong. I live and work in Chiangmai. I just started learning leather work at the beginning of 2012 and have found that I have really enjoyed creating handmade leather bags and am surprised h...
Suranat was a great host and instructor. He was very patient and demonstrated everything but let us do it all ourselves (didn't do any work for us or pre setup anything so it was entirely self crafted). We had a lot of fun talking and learning with the very lovely couple and came back with a nice leather pouch! Lunch was also great.

A well structured workshop for beginners. We learnt to appreciate leather goods making more and loved the hands on to make our very own small pocket pouch. Highly recommended for those seeking some hands on crafts.
