Jul 8 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Streamlined Style for Contemporary Leather Bindings @ Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, Level 4 | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Free spots are limited; please apply using the link provided. The application deadline is May 24. Learn a variety of decorative techniques for use on leather bindings. These techniques require minimal equipment and modest leatherworking skill, and some can also be applied to cloth or paper. Demonstrated methods include: backpared onlays, inlaid lines, stamping texture into leather, feathered onlays, Lacunose (abstract sanded leather collage), craquele, various inlay techniques, laminating a paper illustration for use as an inlay, various methods of creating sculptural boards, transfer of computer-printed onlay shapes from paper to leather, and laser printing on leather. Students’ completed set of four goatskin plaquettes together with a detailed handout are valuable reference for future projects. See examples of the techniques covered in this workshop here. Note: This is not an entry-level leather-working course. Students should have some experience with edge-paring and forming leather corners.
