First time at KSFF! Learn how to ecoprint on lambskin leather naturally as well as create a beautiful background in color! Ecoprinting (also known as botanical printing) involves collecting leaves, plants and flowers to imprint their images directly upon their leather. Students will learn: • Leather-everything you need to know to understand, locate, select and work with leathers that accept ecoprinting no matter where you live! • Equipment-what you need and how to use it (most of which you already have! • Plants-All about plants, leaves, weeds and flowers and using them on Leather • Mordants- descriptions and ratios • Dyes- easy to use selections for permanent results • Care - and conditioning of your leather • Tools- cross over tools many crafters already have for leather work. • Sources for leather, dyes and mordants and tools (in US and online) • Facebook Group-private group exclusively for my students and Tutorial buyers to learn more At the end of class students will leave with 2 samples (approx. 8” x 18”) of ecoprinted lambskin leather- naturally ecoprinted and in color and the ability to continue the process with the knowledge learned in the workshop.
