Leatherwork: Image Transfer on Leather

ID : 6013   
« back to classes page
Tell a story with leather by designing and creating your own leather clutch adorned with photos, images or patterns you choose. Students may use their own photos or images, or choose from a selection of images provided in class. Students will learn to transfer images onto leather using two methods, Blender pen and Citrasolv, along with basic leather working techniques. Your clutch will be finished with a sealant, burnished, and either stitched or riveted, and a closure will be added. Prior to class students will have the opportunity to provide images or photos that can be prepared for use in class. Please see the Extension web page for info about dimensions, photo/image quality and deadlines for submitting photos.

Students will go home with image transfer and leather work knowledge, and the ability to make other leather projects at home.  A resource list of where to find leather, tools and equipment will also be provided. No prior leatherwork experience necessary, but some sewing, making or crafting experience is helpful.

Please be sure to wear comfortable clothing and closed toe shoes.
