ABOUT THIS EVENT
Arts & DIY
This is a beginner-friendly class that will introduce you to basic leather stamping and staining. All while you make a custom pet collar for your furry friends!
The art of working with leather has been around for centuries all around the world. This durable and beautiful material will withstand years of wear and tear, and as it ages it actually softens and looks more beautiful!
In this workshop you will learn how to properly "case" the leather to make it more controlled and fluid and easy to work with. You will practice stamping and staining raw test pieces of leather to get the feel of how it works. Finally, you will create a custom design for your pet collar and bring it to life. Finishing touches will include setting rivets and attaching the buckle.

Denver based Crafty Chassis Owner and Creator Kristin Heidbreder has always had a passion for the arts. Handicrafts have been a part of multi-cultural societies for thousands of years. The original Arts and Crafts Movement occurred internationally in the late eighteen hundreds. This movement continues to grow today with various DIY brick and mortar studios that offer artistic classes around the city. These studios along with the growing food truck and fashion truck craze helped to inspire Kristin to transform a box truck into a mobile arts and crafts studio. Kristin believes art is therapy, and her goal is to bring friends, family and strangers together in social settings and stimulate the right side of the brain.
