Madhouse Workshop: Leather Detailing

Madhouse Multi-Arts 479 Main Street, Greenfield

Workshop instructor and Madhouse Co-founder Jackson Williams has always had an appreciation for quality leather apparel. A well made leather jacket, belt, or pair of boots can last a lifetime if maintained and will gradually mold itself to the specific shape of the wearer. This idea of leaving a personal imprint on the items that you carry with you through life has led Jackson to explore further methods of personalization in recent years. During that time he has developed a unique method of leather detailing by combining embossing and leather painting techniques to achieve vibrant and intricate patterns such as the one shown above. With this approach Jackson will demonstrate how you too can take an ordinary leather item and make it even more beautiful and unique! By the end of this workshop series you will have gained a fundamental grasp of embossing and leather painting techniques and how to use them together to create elegant repeating patterns. Over the course of these workshops each participant will detail a belt similar to the one shown above with a pattern of their own design which they will get to keep after completing the series.

It combines rough-hewn powerhouse vocals with arrangements that betray both an extensive record collection and a whimsical instinct for joyous noises — think Dusty Springfield fronting Spoon circa Kill The Moonlight or a 60s girl group creative directed by Nick Lowe and PeeWee Herman. It’s vibrant and varied and packed with personality.“How do you put yourself into a record? Torbitt and I wanted to make it feel like you cracked open the ooze in my head,” Morris says, referring to her co-writer and producer Torbitt Schwartz AKA Little Shalimar (Run The Jewels). Morris is an accomplished visual artist and stop-motion animator, so it’s appropriate that I Am What I’m Waiting For takes a collagist approach, mischievously recombining all sorts of rock and roll ingredients — the sass and swagger of Ronnie Spector, the more acid-fried corners of the Nuggets compilations, post-modern interpolations of mid-century exotica music, the…
