About this Event

Leather dyeing is not as easy as you'd think! But don't worry, it's Francesca to the rescue! Come on down and I'll go over some of the basics with you and give you some helpful tips gained through experience and research.

This is a very hands-on class. I'll provide a rounder with the DMS logo for everyone in the class to dye, unless you'd like to bring your own bit of leather.

We'll go over types of dye, dyeing technique, during black, as well as finishing dyed leather. Then, well pick a dye and apply it to our rounders! We will not have time to finish them (coat them in a protective substance), the drying process can take a while, but you can stay for a bit and finish if you'd like.

Leatherworking Basics is not required for this class, but it is required for using anything in the leatherworking cabinet outside of class, including dye, and I would highly recommend taking basics before this class.

The fee is to go toward rounders and dye.

Special Considerations and Warnings

Some dyes have very strong odors, though I will try to keep the area as well ventilated as possible.
It is entirely possible that dye will get on whatever you are wearing, so please dress appropriately.
