No more wondering where to start… Imagine… from day one, learning how to design something you can actually move in, how much leather you’ll need, how many rivets you’ll need !! … I’ll even let you know “Which Tools” you’ll be needing & “How to use them”

I know… Sounds so obvious but FINALLY…. No More Guessing, Spending Hours Trawling YouTube for Answers or Making Mistakes, Because You Had No One to Ask for Help !!!

Why Thousands of Students Have Chosen to Study With us Over The Years?

Because working from our courses or using our patterns means they Save Valuable Time & MONEY with the peace of mind they have been created by professionals, and…

Because… they know We understand that life often gets in the way of THE FUN STUFF! which is why EVERYTHING is designed for you to work at your own pace… No deadlines!

All our courses & patterns require little more than a small workbench and seven basic tools… I know… Crazy, but that’s all I PERSONALLY USE… Meaning no matter your experience… Literally ANYONE can do this! (and we are here to help make sure you can!)

Hey… I’m Alex Agricola

Alex Agricola Headshot

When I started out, there was no internet, so I was reliant on books and hands on experimentation to develop my skills.

When I started out, there was no internet, so I had to rely on books and hands on experimentation to develop my skills.

20+ years & thousands of projects on and it’s still surprisingly difficult to find information on leatherwork, especially for armour & costumes… Which is very much a part of WHY I wanted to share my learning…

…Which is also WHY I made the cost of my Courses and Patterns such ridiculous value… Because the real reward for me, has always been to witness the transformation in peoples projects!

Ask any of my students… From Day 1, you have me personally on tap to ask anything! No matter the question, if it’s in my power to guide you, I will.

When you purchase your Course, all materials are yours for life. You are able to login and download patterns, watch & re watch Videos at your leisure (to your desktop rather than mobile)

Should you ever change computer, that’s no problem at all, the system will let you re-download up to 5 times, after which you just need let us know and we will send you fresh files.

All of these projects have been built using the minimal of basic tools & I am pretty sure, if you’re anything like me… I like to keep things nice and simple… So no need for anything fancy, literally $50-$60 worth of tools all available on Ebay or Amazon should do the trick.

Absolutely…. In fact ask any of our alumni…. Our optional student group on facebook are one of the most supportive peer to peer groups I have ever had the honour of being part of.

Questions with relation to any of the subjects covered in class are openly discussed as are further techniques outside of those taught in each module..

Each course comes with 12 months Tutor Support ongoing.

There is no time limit for any module, in fact many have come back and thanked me for dripping out the content, so you can enjoy at your own pace… Some concepts might seem quite detailed and that’s what a few students have thought too, UNTIL they started following my step by step way of doing things…

… and while you may think they are time consuming, that’s a GOOD thing, because many won’t take the time to follow a process…

…. So it’s YOUR projects that stand out and turn heads πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜Š

Honestly …. That’s the whole beauty of the Academy & the support network that comes with any purchase. In fact it’s a huge part of why the Academy exists…

…..meaning Irrespective of level of experience or prior knowledge or experience, ALL our students have been able to build patterns and pursue any of the projects I’ve made available AND…

…To my knowledge, no question asked asked of me has been left unanswered πŸ™‚
