Workshop Description: Looking to fill in a space that you don’t have the right basket stamp for? Don’t have a pattern to trace that fits? Not interested in using a floral design? Creating our own basket weaving designs that can be carved with less than half a dozen tools, mallet included. We’ll be learning a design concept opening an endless supply of possibilities and options with mind boggling effects. We will talk about “design thinking”, leading us much further along and beyond just making a pretty drawing. It is all about easy-to-remember grids and formulas, no need to be good at drawing. If you can hold a pencil and count to three you’re in. The result? Some never-before-seen basket weaving designs with a hypnotic effect on the viewer – though they are as easy to create as a smile. This workshop can be taught in French, German, English, Italian and Spanish.

Materials to bring: Hard pencil (H or HB), soft pencil (3B or softer), colored pencils (at least 4 colors), ruler, minimalist carving set (swivel knife, beveler, modelling tool, mallet), and a stamping stone.

Workshop Instructor: 2017 Al Stohlman Award winner Serge Volken (a.k.a.Bigfoot) has surprised us more than once with innovative design concepts. His design classes are more than just learning to draw a pattern. It is whole concepts – giving a key for each one to create an endless amount of designs other than the classics seen over and over again. His intention is to widen the design options for leather carvers. As he often mentions: Instead of handing out a banana you will get the key to the banana plantation. Serge speaks French, German, English, Italian and Spanish.

Workshop Sponsors: Hermann Oak Leather Co.
