In this class you will learn a simple technique for hand painting monograms onto leather. Each student will receive a handmade veg-tan leather card case to monogram and may also bring an additional leather item to the class to personalize as well—it could be a handbag, wallet, phone case, shoes—almost anything you’d like!
You will be able to choose your initials from either serif or sans serif fonts, and a wide range of paint colors will be available to go as simple and straightforward or complex and creative as you’d like.
