Workshop: The Bracer
Presented by Bruce Mitchell, Stan Winston School of Character Design
This will be a wrist-worn leather bracer featuring a top of the hand cap. We will then use “Bits and Parts”* to augment it into a “tech-based” device. The bulk of the augmentation will be decorative. However, if the builder wants to add to it after the lesson it will serve as a functional foundation.
This will be a basic leather craft exercise. But the functionality and decor of the piece will increase not only the look of the basic craft but enhance the builder's craftsmanship with just a few tips and pointers.
Will this be something to just wear and look good or will the builder take it to a functional level. Whichever you chose a solid foundation will be a great start.
* “Bits and Parts”These are nothing any creative crafting hoarder will not have. Small cool parts that they just could not throw away. I will provide pictures of my own for reference.
