We have just completed another successful shearling workshop. All of the students did a tremendous job on their jackets. We had some interesting projects. The workshop began with a shopping day in Toronto where students found some unique skins for their projects. One student made a full length coat out of shearling which was dark brown suede on the outside and dyed in a geometric print on the inside. Another student used skins with a metallic finish. Quite unusual were the skins used by another student who made a knee length coat. The skins had been factory fused with denim which was then burnished or laser finished with a floral design. The coat was an interesting denim on the outside but inside was beautiful gold shearling wool. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on the 2009 workshop. A great job done by all!
