One Day Workshop: Flowers in Leather at Dimensions in Leather



27 JUNE 2016


The Dimensions in Leather conference is the largest event for leather crafters in Australia and New Zealand. It's a wonderful opportunity to learn from some the best leather crafters over five inspirational days, and join a vibrant community of makers that share a collective passion for leather.

For the first time in history, you can now register to attend Dimensions part time, which means even if you don't have a whole spare week in June, you don't have to miss out altogether.

Sheridan style master Akiko Okada will be flying in from Japan, award-winning crafter and tutor Peter Main from the USA; John Shortt, Custom Saddler will be making the trip up all the way from Bredbo, NSW and in latest news, Barry King, of Barry King Tools will be sharing his insights on, you guessed it, tooling leather.

I will also be there, coordinating the event and teaching a one day workshop on how to create Flowers in Leather



 Spend a day with me, creating a timeless and stunning flower accessory you can
wear as a hair piece, dress up a bag, turn into a statement necklace, brooch and
more! I'll show you the
 basics to laying out your pattern, cutting, colouring and
different applications on shaping the flower petals and leaves including optional
ideas for flower centres. 

Apron and scissors.


No previous experience is required.

All tools and equipment will be supplied for students to use during the workshop.






Visit the Dimensions in Leather website or contact me to find out more about this fantastic event, but hurry! Places are filling up fast.


2015 Dimensions in Leather Conference April 10, 2015 09:23

Dimensions in Leather

I've been busy planning the 'Dimensions in Leather" Conference with the Leathercrafters Association of Queensland Inc. to be held in Brisbane from Saturday 4 July to Sunday 12 July 2015.

This is our eleventh conference since 1994 and is the only event of its type in Australia. 

Come along and enjoy six days of exciting leather workshops for beginners and experienced artisans interested in furthering their knowledge of leathercraft/art and saddlery with experts in the trade from all over the world.

The week involves more than workshops, with trade suppliers on site, evening activities and even a competition for participants.

I'll be showing you how to make your own leather tote or clutch, so make sure you don't miss out and register your attendance today because numbers are limited!

The venue is within the St. John’s College located just 5 kms from Brisbane City centre within The University of Queensland's St Lucia campus.

I look forward to seeing you!
