Tooling on Leather

Workshop with Jana Pullman

There is something magical about a decorative tooled book, the feel of the recessed patterns and the shimmer of the fine gold lines. This class will be a practical introduction to the both traditional and non-traditional techniques that are used for tooling on leather. We will sample boards to practice on as we learn about the materials and techniques.

Students should bring two plaquettes covered in leather approximately 7 ½” x 5”. If you have questions about this, contact Julie at julia-leonard@uiowa.edu.
