My work is 100% digital. I'm a social ads specialist. Which means a lot of successfull campaigns but no real - touchable - outputs. Which is something I need to live in harmony :-D You may know that, that feeling when you finish some real project. And it doesn't matter if you manage to drill a few holes and put shelves on the wall or it's something bigger. The real result and real effort make us happier. That's why I do leathercraft. And I want you to try it too! With all my gained experience that I want to share.

Where you'll be

Welcome to my workshop, where you will feel at home :-) And what's more - you will get to know the best place with the best food and coffee on every corner - Karlín.

I highly recommend this workshop with Jan! I had a really great experience by working for the first time with leather. Jan is teaching very well, showing and taking the time to explain. Nice mood and atmosphere during the workshop 👍🏼 Making this belt was a gift offered and it will be an original an unique souvenir! Paul
