TIM SWAINSON (NEW ZEALAND)


PHONE CASE / COVER

Phone Case - Tim Swainson

ONE-DAY WORKSHOP (SUNDAY).

MATERIAL COST $25.00

In this workshop I have created a simple way to make cases.

Because cell / mobile phones are different sizes with this construction you will learn how to create a simple pattern, learning a different technique to make this style of case where the joins are hidden.

This technique can be used to create many other cases and containers of varied sizes.

The workshop will cover discussion on how to put a design/pattern onto the front of the case. If you have a preferred pattern created before you attend the workshop there may be a chance to put that on to the front flap. Or the phone case can be left plain and coloured.

The case is constructed with a combination of Kangaroo and Cow hide veg tanned leathers.

Techniques covered in this workshop:

  • Moulding/shaping a case.
  • Hand sewing if a Belt attachment is preferred.
  • Skiving.
  • Sewing.
  • Assembly.
  • Design /decoration for the front flap.
  • Colouring.

EMBOSSED JEWELLERY CREATIONS

Tim Swainson - Leather Jewellery

TWO-DAY WORKSHOP (MONDAY/TUESDAY).

MATERIAL COST $20.00

We will be creating at least a couple of different types of jewellery.

A number of different colouring techniques will be used to colour the leather then we will create our own stones to put into our jewellery.

A different embossing technique will be used to obtain depth and detail without the use of a swivel knife or stamps.

Tim Swainson - Dragon Barrette

DRAGON MOULDED BARRETTE

ONE DAY WORKSHOP (WEDNESDAY).

MATERIAL COST $10.00

During this workshop we will be using carving and moulding techniques to create this dragon.

The piece is approximately 120 x 100mm with a depth of 30-40mm, and could be used to hold up your hair, put in front of a bag, or journal, or just framed and hung on the wall.

Once learnt, these techniques can be used to create many different types of items.

CONTAINER

Tim Swainson - Leather Container

TWO DAY WORKSHOP (FRIDAY/SATURDAY).

MATERIAL COST $40.00

We will be creating a square container about 100 x 100 x 150 mm with a difference. The container will be shaped and the inside lined. The bottom and top will be moulded to fit the shape of the container. The technique can be used to create other shapes.

The thin leather edges will be skived to a feather edge so that they can be folded and any showing joins made to disappear.
