The School

Some people say leather crafting is a dying art. At Alden’s School of Leather Trades we are devoted to keeping that art alive. We believe we must create new interest and pass along old traditions. We believe creativity is like a muscle. It must be worked to see it’s full potential. Everyone has his or her own way of being creative. Here at Alden’s School of Leather Trades, we lead you in finding your full potential. When working with leather you are only limited by your imagination. There is an endless canvas to work on. When broken down into elements that you can understand, The most complicated project can become simple.

Our classes are designed to give each student the best opportunity to learn. All of our leather working classes are limited to no more than five students. This gives each student the opportunity to learn from more than just their own project, while maximizing their time to learn and practice techniques. We also believe the best learning environment is a fun one. We enjoy what we do and keep a positive atmosphere in the shop.
