Etsy Masterclass: Leather Painting and Embellishing



Description

Come on a leathercraft adventure with Katie from Studio Liebling in this 2 hour, get-your-hands-dirty, leather painting and embellishing workshop.

Katie will lead you through traditional and contemporary leather crafting techniques including casing and stamping leather, setting rivets and press-studs and working with leather paints so you can make and personalise your own unique leather project. Learn how to design and make a small project of your choice - such as a leather jewellery piece, a coin purse or key chain.

Along the way you will also gain some insights on leather as a creative medium, where leather comes from and how to select the right piece of leather for the job.

A fun, practical and creative workshop for anyone that is curious about leathercraft, painting or just likes trying something new.  No prior experience necessary.

About Katie Engelhardt from Studio Liebling:

Katie Engelhardt is a second-generation leatherworker and the designer and maker of Melbourne based leather goods company, Studio Liebling.  Making functional objects and jewellery from locally sourced leather, reclaimed native Australian wood, solid brass, and a decent dose of saturated colour and metallics.

Katie utilises traditional leather crafting methods and tools, and all stages of production are hand worked, from the cutting of the leather, to the dying, stitching, burnishing and finishing. 

Through her apprenticeship in traditional leather crafting and background as an event stylist and set dresser, Katie has developed an individual approach to colour and shape, combining traditional leather working techniques with a contemporary aesthetic. 

Enthusiastic about her craft, Katie loves any opportunity to share the skills she’s gathered along the way with others.
