Bag Making Classes

Make a leather bag from scratch.
No previous experience needed.

Hi there, I'm Ksenia Khelman, bag designer and maker.

In 2017 I turned hobby into a full time job and now make a living making handmade custom bags from scratch. The studio is located in San Fransisco, CA.


I always strive to improve my skills and love to optimize the making process a lot. 1000+ bags are made through the years. But must say, I'm pretty far from classical school and the class contains a lot of author techniques, hacks and shortcuts. They are easy-going to follow and fun to make, and this is why we all are here, right? To learn in calm and friendly environment.

It'll be my joy and honor to teach you what I know.
Thank you for joining the class, I'm excited to see you here!

Pre-recorded Videos

The classes are pre-recorded videos to watch online at your own pace and rewatch as many times as you want.

Unlimited Access

There is no expiration date to the enrolled classes. You got it once and you always will have it to rewatch if you forgot something.

Home sewing machine

That's the classes gem! You don't have to buy a professional sewing machine. All projects are adjusted to be made on your home sewing machine. The techniques are the same, the difference is only in the thickness of leather used.

Ask me
a question

The classes are very detailed, but if something remains unclear you're welcome to ask me a question. The feature is available after each lesson.

Student Dashboard

The classes are placed on the reliable and respectful teaching platform Thinkific and you'll have your personal account and Student dashboard to track your progress. You can watch online on your phone, tablet, or laptop. If you'll have any questions you're always welcome to reach me at

What class will work better for me?

It depends on your goals, wishes and current level of your experience.

If you already worked with fabric and would like to start working with leather I’d recommend taking any Step-by-Step classes to catch a grip what's the difference between working with fabric and leather then you can just go with the Patterns, they are easy to follow video instructions + PDF pattern.


If you’d like to improve the level of your creations take a look at the separate classes: Pockets, Closures, Crossbody bags, Totes and Pouches & Accessories.

Also, you can take a look at the Bundles to have everything at once for the bundle cost.
