Strong and flexible, comes in a variety of textures, colors and weights, making it suitable for a variety of projects, from wallets to jewelry, from shoes to boxes or bowls. In this workshop, students will learn the basics of leather working, through designing and constructing a small leather bowl or box. Some ornamental and surface design techniques, such as trapunto and edge lacing, will also be taught. The After Workshops are a series of high quality hands-on classes, at low cost and low commitment. Materials, skills and fun supplied. And it's BYOB.\\Instructor Nicole Asselin\\

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 

 

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
