Length of workshop: 2 days

 

 

Workshop description:

Foils should not be limited to just stamping machines. In this workshop we will cover both traditional and alternative decorative techniques using hand tools with an emphasis on how to use a stylus tool. We will use different types of foils including real 23kt. gold and metallic and pigmented colors on leather, cloth, and paper to show the advantages foil can have over the traditional leaf tooling. This class will be helpful in learning to use the tools, jigs, and patterns used in decorative tooling.
