This workshop will cover detailed instruction on how to create unique Leather Flowers and leaves hand-crafted from light weight vegetable tanned leather.
The workshop will progress in an easy-to-follow step by step manner. Techniques covered are pattern layout, cutting, colouring and different applications on shaping the flower petals and leaves including optional ideas for flower centres.
Cherryl has an eye for colour and graduated shading techniques to create beautiful life like leather flowers, all that will be missing is the fragrance! While leather and flowers are not often thought of together, a leather flower can create a beautiful decorative element for an outfit or accessory. Flowers’ in leather are timeless and a fashion statement. You can wear these delicate flowers as jewellery, hair accessories, and dress up a bag, belt, corsage, bouquet, brooch pin or a clip for a pair of ballet flats for a timeless spring look.
Tools and equipment will be supplied for students to use during the workshop.
