Want to learn how to carve leather?

Written by 

art leatherArtisan in the Mountains will host a leather carving demonstration featuring local artist Martin Carter from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 25, at 99 Depot Street in Clyde.

 

Carter was first introduced to the art of hand carved leather when he took a course in high school. After 20 years in heavy industry construction, he became well known for his talents as an artist blacksmith. Following a decade of working with metal, Carter rediscovered his interest in leather carving. With the use of tools on vegetable tanned leather, his work is based on traditional western designs as well as art nouveau and designs from nature. He also insists on using eco-friendly dyes and acrylic paints to finish. 

The event is free and open to the public.
