Behind the Scenes with Seattle Leather Artist, Caitlin

Today, we visit our host Caitlin at her studio in Seattle to observe a day in the life of a leathercraft artist and see what her classes have to offer.

 

About Caitlin:

I’m a full-time leathercraft artist, mother, and author of “Leathercrafted.” I’m a certified leathercraft master.

I started Moxie & Oliver in 2014 out of a desire to create leather accessories that were as durable as they were beautiful. After eleven years making leather goods, and with the original pieces still in use (and looking amazing), I have accomplished that and so much more. Teaching leathercraft classes out of my studio allows me to share my love of the craft, my knowledge of the process and history, and my original techniques for adding pattern and color, with interested students.

Classes are open to anyone age 12 and older. My unique process allows anyone, artistic background or not, to be able to create a beautiful, functional, leather good in an afternoon, a day or a weekend. Come with an open mind and a rough idea of what you’d like to accomplish — with your inspiration and my guidance, YOU will make something wonderful!
