Tue 2/13, Leather Jewelry, 6:30-9:30pm
In this awesome starter leather class- you will learn and apply leatherworking techniques to cut, dye, and assemble your own jewelry pieces from vegetable tanned leather! Natasha will give you the necessary guidance while promoting creative freedom to customize your pieces… She will demonstrate how to mix dye to arrive at the color or stain you desire, then apply that dye to your leather. There will also be acrylic paints available to use if you would like to embellish your items. Finally, you will add the necessary jewelry hardware to finish the pieces. Natasha will also discuss the benefits of using vegetable tanned leather, as well as how to take care of your new pieces! You will leave class with 3 pieces/pairs of jewelry and a working knowledge of the tools and techniques necessary to create more pieces at home!
