Marbled Leather Purses with Sadye Harvey of Temerity | $200 Individual / $360 Friends

  • Makers Mess 602 North Hoover Street Los Angeles, CA, 90004 United States (map)

Learn the process of creating a marbled leather purse from start to finish with Sadye of Temerity! This workshop will introduce students to the wonder of marbling, an amazing, sponaneous art form that creates beautiful one-of-a-kind surfaces. We will use a traditional method of marbling in a thickened waterbath, and have the opportunity to make a few practice prints as we get the hang of the process. Once you have defined your color palette, we will marble and assemble a convertible leather purse that can be carried three ways - as a belt bag, as an over the shoulder bag, or as a clutch or small bag tossed in a tote. You will learn to use pattern pieces, how to cut leather, decorative stitching techniques, and finishing techniques - everything you need to know to create beautiful, long lasting leather pieces. We will use natural veg-tan leather which is tanned with plant derived tannins, a more sustainable process than conventional chromium tanned leather. Add a pop of marbled magic to your wardrobe and leave with a new understanding of two time-honored creative processes!
