Students will be working with very high quality lamb and or goat suede to create both arashi and kumo shibori techniques on leather using non-toxic dyes. The leather will be pole wrapped and either over-dyed with black or hand painted using Colorhue dyes while on the pole. After dyeing the leather will be removed from the pole, rinsed and dried—ready to cut and assembled into a purse, pillow or jacket. A variety of colored hides will be available for purchase. See instructor’s website and student supply list for more detailed information.
