Workshop Description: Takeshi will show and explain how he designs and cuts his Sheridan style leather carving directly onto leather. Students will learn his design process, order of cuts, and fundamental design technique. This class will focus on the design process directly on leather, and the goal is to connect two circles nicely and be exactly what you want. Yone will show and explain how he stamps, but this class is more focused on the design process, so you may not finish stamping during this class.

Materials to bring: Swivel knife, stylus, circle template or divider, stamps, stamping surface, and maul/mallet. Optional: Flower jig (tap off).

Workshop Instructor: Takeshi ‘Yone’ Yonezawa started leatherwork nearly twenty years ago in Tokyo, Japan. In a world of speed and consumption, Yone invests his passion, love and time into his work. It’s not about creating for profit, but creating with the intent to change the perception and standards of quality leather goods. He is a firm believer that handmade = better, with countless hours of effort and thought spent going the extra mile to combine flawless execution, balanced form and function, and beautiful design. Yone specializes in Japanese, American and European leatherwork. He is a proud member of the Portland Leather Guild and the Lone Star Leather Guild and lives in Beaverton, Oregon, with his wife, son, and dog.

Workshop Sponsors: Hermann Oak Leather Co. and Tandy Leather
