MONOGRAM MAGIC CLASS
"You will not find more divine accessories to hand make, use, gift or wear.”
In this class Emma Swann, founder and creative director of Recreational, will demonstrate the art of foil embossing on a range of quality leather goods. You’ll typeset your own vintage items, to take home for yourself or a loved one.
A light lunch will be served, with endless refreshments, and obligatory pats of Emma’s charming dog Alber
Italian leathers and letterpress foundry type face, art directed to perfection, and hand-pressed by you. Emma from Recreational Studios owns her own press, the most darling of machines - her Grandfather's, naturally. This class has you in Emma’s magnificent studio with her trusty machines, where you will make your own band with an ‘ism, a date, and a monogram or a manifesto. You will also make your own super chic note-lets, and have a lesson in placement, art direction and accessories styling, to leave you with your own brand of beautiful things. Leather so beautiful you will want to rub your face on it! Paper so heavy you will sigh deeply. And tinkering with your, or your loved one's, font from her incredible foundry, in her magnificent working studio. This class will have you in all-day monogramming bliss.
The class includes your own leather tag (Recreational Studios will prepare and hand make these for collection at the class) and super chic creamy note let cards.
DATE/TIME: 26 Feb, 10am - 1pm.
LOCATION: Emma's St Peters Studio (address will be emailed at booking)
"For centuries people have personalised their most loved items by embossing them with initials, special dates, and sentimental messages. My mother was a victorian jewellery nut, and restorer, and my father ran an antique restoration. Combine this with my Saint Martins’ training, and Florence Leather school training, and you will not find more divine accessories to hand make, use, gift or wear.”
