Eco Print on Leather and Paper

M. Theresa Brown

Jan 30- Feb 2

STUDENT SUPPLY LIST
Although sewing leather (on a suitable machine) is an option,  students will learn the hand sewing technique. The leather kit from Amazon has supplies that work with both paper and leather and the kidskin leather is a 5 sq ft hide which they can take what they do not use home and make additional items. I will bring leaves-easier and I will have them BUT we will also forage for a few😊

*1 Kidskin hide  ($15.00 per hide)
