Info sull'evento

Ecoprint on Leather: This 5 day  workshop held at beautiful John C Campbell Folk School is a Maker's Workshop and is suitable for all levels of experience. Ecoprinting uses the tannins, shapes and properties of Nature's leaves, plants and flowers to imprint designs onto assorted substrates such as silk, wool, linen and other fibers. Leather can be a particular challenge. So in this workshop, you will learn the techniques of creating imprints on leather with designs in color and natural.

What will you be doing? You’ll learn to Ecoprint on several types of Leather both lambskin and top grain.  Use your newly imprinted pieces to start exploring construction techniques that you might apply to making leather designs into beautiful handbags, clothing, jewelry, and even shoes in the future. I'll share tips to types of leather, care, maintenance, sealants, softening and care. We'll explore hand and machine sewing on leather. Additionally we will also explore working with leather dyes and tinting our creations to add beautiful and flattering colors to our leather ecoprints. We'll also use a basic die cutting machine to make quick templates for earrings and bracelets in leather.
