Workshop Outline: Janelle Hampton has been working with leather for over 20 years and is self taught. Janelle has won many awards for her leathercraft at the RAS, the Hawkesbury Show and the Dobell Arts and Crafts Festival in the Central Coast and won 1st Prize last year. Janelle has a wealth of knowledge to pass
onto students and her classes are fun to attend and should not be missed.

The class will be a two day workshop.

In this class Janelle will be teaching the Basic Introduction to the Art of Leathercraft.

Janelle will show the students how to construct a passport wallet or a small notebook folder. There will be different techniques that will be shown from stamping to easy carving. The choice will be yours. As can be seen from the various pictures, they can have decoration details on them or they can be plain. Your imagination and creativity is endless and you can make the wallet or folder unique and personal for yourself or for a friend or family member. There are many colours you can choose from to dye your project. Again, try your skills at making the wallet or folder in the colour you desire.

Over the course of the weekend you will learn to stamp or carve or a combination of both, dye the colour of your choice and construct the wallet.
