"I had been wanting to take a Yestermorrow course for a few years and finally found the right course and the time to do it! Really enjoyed getting back into hands-on work in the Leather making course and can't wait to take another. Justin was a top-notch instructor and has an amazing variety of skill and knowledge which made the course even better."

"Justin was very knowledgeable about the history, process and the hands on skill needed to do our projects. He was extremely patient and flexible."
