Golden Bear Belts teaching at WEST DEAN

Golden Bear Belts teaches at the prestigious West Dean. ” The art of surface pattern” on leather is a creative adventure in the specifics of translating pattern on to leather. You will learn how to emboss, stamp, tap, scribe, cut, hand paint, gild in sliver, gold and copper leaf, decoratively rivet and use hardware for design decoration. I like to teach the basics of artistic source and how we feed directly into our creativity. I like my courses to be highly creative and fun, pulling in all the skills that I have to make an interesting mix. You will walk away from this course with a good grounding for surface decoration, inspired. You can start the process of developing a strong style in leather crafting and the art of surface pattern on leather.
