SO SORRY! WORKSHOP HAS BEEN POSTPONED
Instructor: Jim Weaver
Saturday & Sunday, June 8 & 9, 2019, from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
NEW DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED
Living in the heart of cowboy country, we’re surrounded by the trappings of the trade: saddles, belts, boots. But there’s another use for tooled leather—as a printmaking matrix. Using leather can impart some unique textures on prints—marks that can be hard to make in other ways. Stamps can add small details like circles, animals, plants. The leather can also be used for expressive line drawings, by cutting and outlining. Or all of these can be combined.
Honoring the traditions:
History and background
Making a traditional cowboy design as a gentle introduction to tooling leather
The first print
Examining the possibilities--Designing and tooling an original print
Breaking with tradition:
Combining Pre-cut elements or Tooling original designs
Collaboration print – let’s combine everyone’s work into one print
All supplies are included in cost.
