All skill levels welcome!
Have you ever wanted to do a different coloring or dyeing technique on your leather, but didn’t know where to start? Here is your opportunity to learn several new, non-traditional, dyeing techniques. In this fun, interactive class you will learn techniques such as tye-dye, and ice dyeing; how to create a watercolor effect; learn what other stuff you can use as dyes; how to use different things as a resist, and more. Participants will make a sample piece of each technique.
