Chrome Tan Overlays & Filligree
Saturday, 05/18, 1:00pm – 5:00pm, W209, Sheridan College
Chrome tan leather can present it’s own challenges, different from veg tan leather. Carl has decades of experience with chrome tan leather, and is an expert in creating overlays and filligree. Carl is the kind of instructor that hopes the student comes with challenging questions, or is simply eager to learn! Not only a workshop for boot makers, these 4 hours will help you avoid costly mistakes and give you purpose the next time you sit down with chrome tan and a sewing machine. An outline will be provided.
