Leather Jewelry Workshop with Rita Van Tassel

3 March 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


I’ve been working with leather and textiles to create bold, colourful statement accessories for years and this is your chance to work with some of my materials. You’ll get to explore various shape and texture combos and leave with up to 3 completed pieces (earrings and/or pendant cord necklace).

ALL of the tools and materials will be provided, including a collection of pre-cut shapes to get you started. You’re encouraged to create your own shapes and w

e’ll talk about scale and colour palettes while we play. 🙂
*Earring findings are hypoallergenic surgical steel hooks for pierced ears.

Come and have fun with us – spaces are limited to 10!


Full refunds will be issued up to 7 days before the workshop date.

Winter is upon us which means weather conditions can quickly result in bad driving conditions. Since I’ll be driving in from Lunenburg I’ll be watching the road conditions both the night before and morning of the workshop. If poor weather forces us to cancel that workshop I will be MOVING it to another date. If the new date does not work for you then I will certainly refund your registration fee in full.
