Ecoprint on Leather Workshop: Florida! May18-21, 2021
This is my 4 day class in FLORIDA in a beautiful waterfront studio! Scheduled for May 18-21. 2021-Register here!
PLEASE visit and note the exemplary COVID safeguards in place at Aya Fiber Studio!
Tap into a new area of your ecoprinting in this 4 day comprehensive workshop on the waterfront at AYA Fiber studio! You’ll learn to use the tools associated with both mediums to create two beautiful Ecoprinted, hand bound Leather journals with your watercolor ecoprints as pages within your journal. Everything you need to know about how I create on leather will be covered from the actual ecoprinting techniques and tips to types of leather, care, maintenance, sealants, softening and even sewing techniques on a machine. As a fun bonus we will also explore working with leather dyes and tinting our creations to add beautiful and flattering colors to our leather ecoprints.
The tools in the student supply kit are suitable for both leather and heavy paper hand construction. Leather techniques covered in the workshop will enable you to not only ecoprint on LEATHER but I will show you techniques on how to turn your leather designs into beautiful handbags, clothing, jewelry and even shoes!
You will leave with 2 leather bound art journals and the tools and knowledge to embark on your own Leather journey in ecoprinting Additional hides will be available for purchase at the workshop.
