JoIn us for a unique early Valentines Day experience and create the perfect custom Leather Harness!
A harness is meant to expand the idea of belting and has been used in high fashion on runways for decades. To create a leather harness, a designer must use belt like shapes to flatter and accentuate the form of the body. While originally harnesses came from a taboo like trend focused on fetish fashion, it has dominated everyday dressing whether to snugly cinch an overcoat or to define and shape an oversized dress.
In this workshop, we will focus on selecting the correct leather and assembling techniques to achieve achieve the perfect form fitting harnesses. Participants will have the opportunity to build their very own harness and along the way experience the feel of traditional leather working techniques. We will discuss sizing along with various methods for adjustability. The goal of the class is to help create a base for creativity and inspire curiosity.
This workshop will be led by thedesigner Sofie Timkovski from Virtue & Valour (www.virtuevalour.com)
All materials are included. Participants will have the ability to choose between black or brown leather, hardware colours, and several harness styles.
This workshop is open to all skill levels!
