**PREREQUISITE: LEATHER PATTERNING PART 1. YOU MUST TAKE PART ONE IN ORDER TO TAKE PART TWO
Come learn how the process of armor making begins as the designers at Ribbons and Rivets lead participants through making their own bracer and shoulder pauldron patterns that can later be transferred to leather.
Night one will cover how to make a paper pattern that can be used not only for leather but also for foam or plastic. Participants will also learn about seam allowances, rigid crafting mediums, and adhesion methods.
Night two participants will use the pattern they made to craft their own bracer out of leather. **YOU MUST ATTEND NIGHT ONE TO BE ABLE TO REGISTER FOR NIGHT TWO**
All tools and materials are provided for this workshop, just bring a pair of hands.
Matthew is a professional costumer as well as the owner of the theatrical design company Ribbons and Rivets, which he founded in 2009. A self-taught leatherworker, he made his first suit of armor in college out of scraps and remnants from the local Tandy. Although it was created primarily as a leather-working business, Ribbons and Rivets has since incorporated a variety of materials to bring designs and characters to life and is known for attention to detail and screen accuracy. Matthew enjoys doing workshops and demos on leather work and patterning, and is always happy to talk shop with fellow costumers.
