Workshop Description: In this class, we’ll take you step-by-step through the process of using pyrography on leather, starting with lightly tooling your project, giving it some depth with 3D embossing. Then, it’s time to add in the shading and details with pyrography. Once that’s done, we’ll enhance it even further by adding highlights with a splash of color. Your masterpiece? A beautiful bird perched on a branch, gazing straight at the camera. (Important: While this is a beginner pyrography class, it is important that students have a solid understanding of how to use a swivel knife and how to use a bevel stamp. We will cover these two techniques, but at an intermediate level.) Pyrography kits will be available to use in the workshop, provided by Weaver Leather Supply.

Materials to bring: Maul, tooling stone, swivel knife, extra steep or steep edge bevel (a traditional bevel will work, but will not provide the same crisp lines), checkered background matting tools, hair blade, craft blade, modeling tools (spoon, stylus, and ball point; ball point modeling tool will be used for embossing, so it needs to be roughly the size of a small marble), fine tipped paintbrush. Optional: heat resistant gloves, additional lighting, magnification, pencil, and strop.

Workshop Instructor: Daniel, a lifelong artist, has explored a plethora of mediums, but it’s leatherworking and airbrushing that truly ignite his creative passion. In his early 20s, he apprenticed under one of the world’s top 10 airbrush artists, an experience that fueled his artistic journey. Now, as a Master Leather Craftsman, Daniel’s craftsmanship has earned him prestigious titles, including two blue ribbons and a coveted Best in Show, all in the Master’s Division.

Workshop Sponsors: Hermann Oak Leather Co. and Weaver Leather Supply
