Workshop: Basic Leather Working:  The Art of Embossing
Date: Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from 6-9pm
Instructor: Lynn Fernandez
Instruction Fee: $25 Del Ray Artisans member / $35 Non-member
Supplies Fee: $15 per person
Class size: maximum of 6 participants

Join artist and instructor Lynn Fernandez in another exciting workshop!  Lynn, owner of “Now Brace Yourself”, handcrafts leather costumes and accessories.  She describes herself as a collector of odds and ends, maker of gadgets, treasure seeker, and costume creator.  Students in this class will learn the art of embossing images and textures into properly cased leather.  Each student will walk away with a custom cuff or wallet at the end of class.  Students who have taken leather course previously will further enhance their existing knowledge, and may have time to complete both projects.  Just in time for the holiday, dazzle a loved one with a hand-made gift!
