Turtle Ridge Gallery

Art Camp - Mini Camp "Handpainting leather"


Did you ever wonder how we tool our designs at Turtle Ridge? Take this class to learn how we emboss and hand paint all our designs.

Students are welcomed and encouraged through the process of painting one of our embossed oval designs. Pick from: tree, botanical, turtle, luna, iris, pairie, grandmas garden,or primitive.

This is a good opportunity to hand paint your own designs to use in another Art Camp, the Embellishment Class, the Construction Class or Chameleon Class. During 3 hour class you will be able to paint a small and an oval design. All materials included.

Cost:  $150

Class limit is 6-8 people.


Thank You for choosing Turtle Ridge Bag. Your purchase supports a tradition of fine design and craftsmanship started in 1974 at Turtle Ridge Gallery, in Door County, WI. My designer, Mary Ellen Sisulak, is inspired by her beautiful surroundings to create special collections. Made of natural leather, markings and different textures make me unique. Many careful steps and quality elements go into my construction.  When we partner up, you will impart your own patina, revealing your story.

I'm built for longevity, and require little care. These simple steps will keep you and me receiving compliments for many years.

Leather Care: Spills on leather should be wiped off ASAP.  Water and saddle soap are recommended for cleaning most leathers. More detailed care instructions are on our website. Purchase our leather care kit online or in store.

Tips: Keep liquids and creams in a separate cosmetic bag. Cap pens, most ink spots cannot be removed.

We make bags we love, and if you love them too, share your stories with us: facebook, instagram
