Tooling on Leather
Mar 2, 2014
10:00 AM - 05:00 PM
20 Davenport Street, Iowa City, IA 52245
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
