Virtual Class Outline

Thank you for your interest in our virtual classes.  


Our program is a progressive program and a different skill is taught with each project.  Due to this we do not skip projects in our curriculum.  If a student does have prior leather working skills this helps to get through the projects quicker and since we are an at your pace program we will continue moving you through the projects by level.  

Please note, since people grasp concepts and procedures at different rates the outline below is estimated.  We will adjust per individual need.
