"I saw just 40 minutes of the video of the T-tote bag. Its just remarkable! I am just so lucky to have found you! I am going to be an entrepreneur. You are my 1st teacher! :)

When I searched in Google using the key words: 'How to design a handbag', your site was one of the first 3-5 sites. This is pretty hard to achieve! And I have not found any other site like yours."

This is the continuation of the BH1 course. It takes you through a few more techniques and reinforces previous lessons. There is no additional cost. 

This class will introduce you to constructed and semi constructed handbags.

You will learn broken bottom, flat bottom construction, gussets and tunnel gusset construction as well as envelopes, clutches and get a introduction to box bag construction.

This is the most comprehensive online handbag course on the internet for this type of construction.

This course will teach you how to make wallets, how to add add compartments to your box bags and how to make simple frames. You will face your first challenge in this class. You will be asked to design something out of a non-traditional material and resources based on your designs. This is an opportunity to push yourself out of your comfort zone and expand your skill set in new and exciting ways. This is also a chance for you to develop your first collection and get constructive feedback throughout the course.
