April in Paris
It's actually March in San Francisco while visiting the Amblard Leather Atelier. I have been wanting to check out the April in Paris Boutique where custom handcrafted leather accessories are made by Hermes trained Beatrice Amblard. Last night I was able to join the tuesday evening drop-in Class. If I lived in San Francisco I would love to sign up for the Advanced 1-year program. However, a two hour class was better than nothing. The class taught the very basics from making a simple pattern to cutting leather. It was a pleasure seeing an atelier that teaches the centuries-old craft of leatherwork using hand and traditional tools.
