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.
Tread the earth in comfortable, handmade, thin-soled leather shoes, custom-fit to your feet. Using bison leather and recycled rubber soles, learn the necessary steps of pattern making, leather working, and hand sewing to create a pair of shoes that could last a lifetime. All materials will be provided. Students of all levels are welcome, though this is a physically strenuous class that requires significant hand and upper body strength. Expect to work evening hours.
Craft a unique pair of squire desert boots. Start with basic pattern making and learn how to properly lay the leather. Skive, fold, and glue uppers together to create a fully leather-lined boot upper, then hand sew to your custom-sized leather sole. Use industrial sewing machines or hand sewing to complete the upper sewing topping. Finish your shoes by burnishing the sole edges and adding a sock lining. All levels welcome; some hand-finger strength and dexterity are needed.
