"Working with my hands is my therapy"

"I am passionate about my job and I want to share this craft with others, create a new leather community.

Leather craft is an easy-to-learn skill. Once you know the basis and have done a couple of projects, it will quickly become the most soothing activity of your day.

I use crafting as a meditation to relieve anxiety and stress. Working with my hands is my therapy.

The sense of accomplishment when you start with a piece of leather and transform it into a handmade leather good is immeasurable.

I offer a wide variety of practical tutorials for all levels and in three languages. Whether you would like to make leather items for yourself, friends or family or start leather craft as a side hustle, I have the tutorials for you!

Beginners or advanced crafters, the world of leather craft awaits you!" 

Nicolas Grinda

"In addition to making world class bespoke leather goods, Nicolas now offers an online school to share his knowledge in a in-depth fashion.

His Leathercraft School may be just what you need to take your skills to new heights.

I’ve been crafting for a few years and have been self taught so far. But something was missing. The Leathercraft School is just what I needed."

"A true masterclass in leather craft! Loved the SOS technique in the stitching tutorial!"

Jeremie K.G.N. (@chinokami)

"I’ve been following Atelier Grinda since the beginning of my leatherwork journey. I was thrilled that he announced the leather school. I signed up and have found the tutorials to be very thoughtful, insightful and very helpful in advancing my knowledge and skill."

Dustin C. (@lunarleatherco)

"Je recommande vivement l’Ecole du Cuir.
J’ai finalement trouvé la passion que je cherchais depuis longtemps! Apprendre la maroquinerie après le travail et pendant les week-ends est devenu ma nouvelle routine.
J’avais fait quelques tentatives de produits en cuir avant, mais sans les bases je n’y arrivais pas et je ne profitais pas.
Les explications des tutoriels sont très claires et concises. Hâte de créer mon propre portefeuille!"

Zeno S. (@zenosolari)

"Que bueno que por fin tengamos los hispanohablantes una manera de aprender marroquinería, es bueno conocer sobre el cuero. Me encanto el tutorial :)"
