Join MATINE designer Carolyn Misterek for an afternoon of crafting and design your own leather card case! There is no sewing required in this project, so it's perfect for beginners.
Carolyn will walk you through a three-step process to turn a single piece of vegetable-tanned leather into a sleek little card case. Then you'll make the piece completely your own by painting the leather with a variety of screen printing inks. Add stripes, monogram it or play with color blocking. Stay simple or go bold—the only limit is your imagination!
All materials will be provided to create one card case and crafters will take home the pattern template for making more cases on your own (hint hint: they make great gifts!).
