Eco printing (botanical printing) involves collecting leaves, plants, and flowers to imprint their images directly upon the leather. Collect botanical matter, then learn how to imprint on both top grain and lambskin leather naturally and in color. Use your newly imprinted pieces to start exploring construction techniques that you might apply to making leather designs into beautiful handbags, clothing, jewelry, and even shoes in the future. Note: materials fee may exceed $100.
