Learn how to Ecoprint on LEATHER
Come to my NC studio and learn to Ecoprint on Leather! Sat and Sun, Nov 9-10 from 10:00 am-4:00 pm.
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 comprehensive workshop at my NC studio! You’ll learn all you need to know from collecting your plants, to my techniques on leather to the types of leather that work best, the care, maintenance, sealants, softening and even sewing techniques by hand and on a machine. You’ll create both natural and dyed ecoprinted leather samples. My photo samples of finished pieces are what I created. We will not be creating an actual completed piece but you will have your completed ecoprinted leather to take home and do so. Leather is the one medium where seeing , touching and smelling it in person in a workshop is important to your complete understanding and success in using it!
This is pure ecoprinting using Nature’s gifts. No experience is necessary, just a desire to learn. If you are a leathercrafter OR ecoprinter on fabric, this is new territory and I teach it from the ground up. You’ll leave with one 5 sq ft. hide and a number of sample sections from assorted leathers you have created giving you the experience to know the look and feel of the best leathers to use as well as the ability to create something after you leave! Additional hides will be available for purchase at the workshop
