WELCOME to Our Leatherwork Classes 

Master leather craftsman Lu Comora makes fine leather bags, wallets, and leather accessories by hand -- one beautiful bag at a time at BOHLUX leather atelier, located in the heart of California wine country, Santa Rosa.  
 
She is passionate about sharing her training and experience with new designers who don't yet have the skills to make their own prototypes and product line.  She offers students' evening classes, one-on-one classes, individual semesters, and the full Master Craftsman Program in a large classroom workshop.  For her advanced Master's Program students she facilitates their entry into retail by selling their bags in the student sections in her Bohlux boutique.  Master's Program students may be able to work on custom-bags in classes, as well.

The Master Craftman's program enables you to turn your visions into a sellable product, take your product photographs, set up your own website, and learn about marketing in a results-based, focused environment.
