Welcome to Multicraft 2018

2018 Bigger & better ideas than ever before!

Welcome to AIS Multicraft workshop 2018.  This year I have some amazing new designs & ideas that I can't wait to share with my students.  I have managed to buy some ataahua (beautiful) leather hides as well as a new set of kam presses. Watch this space.  

Here are some finished products from St Peter & Paul's school.  Very good quality detail.

Check out our new kam press.  This tool puts domes into materials like rubber & leather.  We are learning new vocabulary - sockets, studs, caps, die.

The first cycle of AIS students have completed 2 projects now.  They are on the road to becoming experts with using machinery like drill presses & scroll saws, & hand tools like hack saws & burring tools.  Check out these fantastic wind chimes.

Shoe Making Fun.

Mrs Robinson attended Shoe School.

The class was held at Adam's Art Gallery.
So many choices of leather & bits'n'bobs.
Red & teal leather selected.
The start of pattern making.
Designs drawn & patterns cut.
Everything needed lining.

Every edge needed sealing!! Very time consuming.

Fitting time with Lou the shoe guru.

Glueing the straps on.

Fumes from glue very potent. 

Ready to add the sole & liner. 

2 days work completed.
