My parents came to visit Hong Kong and I wanted to do something a little creative this time around, considering we ticked most of the tourist boxes for them last trip.
I stumbled across a post by a friend of mine from KL on Facebook where she was making a leather belt in what looked like an amazing little space somewhere in Sheung Wan. I hunted down the place, quickly emailed the owners and booked Dad and I in for a class.

The 852 has been experiencing a serious heat wave, this turned out to be the perfect air conditioned day time activity! The shop is only small so classes are kept to 2-3 people. Ken is the leather working master and doesn’t speak much English but his hand gestures and visual guidelines are en pointe!
