In this class you will be choosing a pattern or design and transfer it to your frame and then learn to paint your design with the simple one-stroke method. We will practice brush strokes if needed. Even if you’ve never painted before, you can do this! (if you make a mistake, you can use a damp cloth and wipe off and start again if paint hasn’t dried) Next you can choose from glass nuggets, charms or rhinestones to add if you’d like. We will then prepare the area where you want to hang your necklaces,bracelets, etc. and add hooks. Then all that’s left is to hang it on the wall, add your jewelry and stand back and admire your work! *additional kits and supplies available.
Skill Level: All Levels
Classes Offered: Friday AM, Friday PM

You will learn basic leather crafting techniques and apply them to your pieces. I will have patterns you can follow for samples, or you can create your own! We will begin with scrap pieces and learn the techniques of stamping. Next you will either cut your own bracelet or use my pre-cut bracelets. The choice is yours. Next we will stamp, dye and polish bracelet. If time allows we will do a simple pendant and earrings to match. I supply many design stamps that can be applied to your leather. The skills you learn in this class will allow you to go home and make other leather items! Additional kits and tools will be available for purchase if desired.
