Leather workshops

With craft being a bit of a hit at the moment, Hong Kong’s leather ateliers’ workshops are getting a lot of attendance. The Fungus Workshop designers Baldwin Pui and Phillip Lau started it all with a series of classes way back in 2009. I went along in 2012 and by the end of my last class I had completed a navy leather clutch with my own initials stamped on the front. Others got dog leads, bags, and even sandals out of these classes. There are quite a few stores in Sham Shui Po that now have leather-crafting workshops and there are many leather-focused ateliers opening up. 

So if leather’s your thing, these stores will have what you are looking for:
