Andrea's Master Class


Andrea's Master Class (AMC)

AMC is an exclusive online 8-week design course that will teach you how to develop an "engineer mindset" that will allow you to visualize, design and produce bags and small accessories with ease. 

For your convenience there will be two sessions in the second series beginning: 

Monday, September 24th at 7 p.m. EST
Wednesday, September 26th at 9 a.m. EST

Space is limited to nine students per class to ensure an intimate and insightful experience for all participants.

A preview of AMC for your further consideration:

AMC is a hands on course in which we focus specifically on Andrea's personal design methodology which she has used to produce and sell thousands of bags and accessories. As part of this process you will learn how to deconstruct and construct bags and small accessories in your mind and design your own original masterpiece before the series ends. Students in the first session of AMC were very successful with this format and as such we will follow the same curriculum for the second session, as outlined below: 

Workshop Format & Discussion Schedule 

Each week you will receive an email with the link to a password protected instructional video and a homework assignment to be completed before our group hangout. 

When you sign up for the workshop you will select a day and time to participate in a weekly Google Hangout which will last approximately 1 hour and during which time you will share your completed homework assignment, interact with other members in the class and ask Andrea and fellow members any questions you may have surrounding the following discussion topics:
