Journal Making Workshop
Spend a few hours in the Moxie & Oliver leathercraft workshop and create a custom Travelers Notebook Journal to take home! We will provide all the tools you need to customize a leather travelers notebook style journal. Come with ideas or be open to the inspiration that you find in the class. We will use our patterns to cut the leather for the journals by hand, then you can add pattern and color using branding, carving and stamping techniques, as well as paints and dyes. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination! This class is appropriate for children age 10 and up, and it's great for adults, too. Anyone who would like to make a journal for themselves or for a gift, or who simply wants to try their hand at leathercraft will enjoy this introduction to the craft. I look forward to making journals with you!
I'm a full-time leathercraft artist, mother, and author of "Leathercrafted." I'm a certified leathercraft master. I started Moxie & Oliver in 2014 out of a desire to create leather accessories that were as durable as they were beautiful. After eleven years making leather goods, and with the original pieces still in use (and looking amazing), I have accomplished that and so much more. Teaching leathercraft classes out of my studio allows me to share my love of the craft, my knowledge of the process and history, and my original techniques for adding pattern and color, with interested students. Classes are open to anyone age 12 and older. My unique process allows anyone, artistic background or not, to be able to create a beautiful, functional, leather good in an afternoon, a day or a weekend. Come with an open mind and a rough idea of what you'd like to accomplish - with your inspiration and my guidance, YOU will make something wonderful!
