Format: We will be using ZOOM for this live broadcast. If you do not have a ZOOM account, it is easy to set one up here: It is free. I will be sending all participants an invite with a link and passcode to join a few days beforehand in an email. It will be easier for you to work with your laptop or iPad so you can see what is going on more clearly. I will be on 30 minutes prior to our start time and recommend checking in to make sure you are connected! All details will go out in an email.
Supplies: I have created 5 supply kits for my Leather workshops (both 1 and 2 day) and what you will need to have for the 2 day workshop. Which kit is best for you totally depends on what you already have in your studio and if you have ever ecoprinted before. You can see the kits here:
Post Office deliveries have been slow so please don't wait till the last minute!
All students will receive an email upon registration with a list of any additional supplies needed (most can be found from your kitchen). It is important to have all your supplies in hand before we start. If you already have my PDF Tutorial, then you are probably set! If you do not have the 55 page Tutorial, it is available after the workshop at 50% off its regular price of $79.95 for those students who have competed the workshop! It is a great refresher and reminder!
How this works best:
I will have a step by step worksheet of prep work for you to do before we start so it's important to read the emails I send prior to class. Part of the challenge of a live workshop is making sure my students have everything ready to start! In a hands on workshop I have everything lined up with each work station with supplies ready to go and heat sources already warmed up.
There will be an opportunity at specific times to ask questions.In fact there will be a 1 hour break in the middle of our workshop! I prefer that everyone initially use the leather in the kits for optimum success .
Day 1 All Natural :will be spent working with both leathers for an all-natural look-no dyes, just your leaves and mordants. You will need 2 leathers-1 kidskin, 1 cowhide..
Day 2 Using Color:will be spent creating using our dyed backgrounds. You will need 2 leathers-1 kidskin and 1 cowhide.
So, whether you are experienced or new to botanical printing, you’ll tap into a new area learning to Ecoprint on leather in this 2 day live workshop!
