Coleen Curry is a contemporary Canadian design binder who lives and works in America. She is well-known for using manipulated and decorated leather for her bindings. In this 3 day workshop, Coleen will share some of her techniques that will enable you to turn leather and suede into beautiful pieces to be used for covering, mosaics and flyleaves.
We will experiment with dye, ink and paint on suede, leather splits, and fair (undyed) leather including Craquele (think batik on leather). We will explore a range of surface manipulations and finnishes ranging from highly polished to satin and matte using different adhesives, foil, paper and textures. Additionally we will experiment with collage using splits, paper as well as metals and thread. This will be a fun and creative class and participants will head home with an arsenal unique materials to use for their own projects.
