About Me

Hi,

Thanks for visiting my profile. I have been working with leather for the past 6 years after I could find a quality cell phone case that I liked. Since then I have invested countless hours and days into finding the best techniques and materials for this craft. I have my leather working studio in Helsinki.

I am very enthusiastic about this craft and I hope I can share it with others as well. I have taught workshops from one on one lessons to groups of 15 people. After moving to Helsinki, I would like to continue to share leather working with students.

I practice and teach European style leather work which is slightly different than Western Style leather work as it does not include leather carving.

Education

Self Taught in leather work for 6 years through books, videos, tutorials and of course YouTube. I also received instruction from the lead craftsman and designer at MadebyNative.

Experience / Qualifications

Part Time Craftsman at MadebyNative luxury leather goods.
I have worked on small scale commercial projects and collaborations for other businesses for small leather goods..

Reviews (1)

MENTORING IN ARTS : Discover how to say something through your artistic work.
I am a visual artist born in Barcelona, settled in Belgium since 2017. As an artist I have accumulated experience for the last 25 years. I am graduated with an Academic Bachelor in Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona and graduated as a Master in Visual Arts at Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerpen. I am specialised in painting, drawing, experimental films, installations, language, sound and curating. In other words, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I understand the artistic practice as a way to understand ourselves and the situations which surrounds us. In my classes I don't teach how to do Art, but as how to say something through your artistic work. With me you can work independently, with a coach who will challenge you with some assignments and giving feedback to your personal concerns. In addition, you will learn how to work with several mediums, preparing your own material: paintings, canvases, and so on. You will not only receive individual coaching but as encourage you to look other artists or take into account other references connected with your concerns. Finding, discussing and retaking solutions together are the core of my classes.
