Having problems colouring natural veg tanned leather projects then, this workshop is a must!

If you have done one of my workshops, you'll know how much I love the way vegetable-tanned leather responds to leather dyes. The possibilities are endless! You can blend just two or three colours together and get so many beautiful shades - as many different colours as in nature itself. But like anything, it takes a lot of practice and skills to achieve exquisite results.

Techniques covered are:

Application of Sprit & Water based dyes, how to achieve graduate shading, resist dyeing, Antique finishes and the different effects, how to enhance tooled and carved designs with dyes and acrylic paints, also other techniques on colouring covered in this workshop.

Leather, dyes, antiques finishes, and sealers supplied for students to use.

If you have some examples of colouring problems, please bring them along.
