Taking place April 8 – 9, the two-day Leather Orientation course will be held at the Leather Research Laboratory on the campus of the University of Cincinnati and will cover a wide range of leather related issues such as physical structure, species identification, hide supply, wet end and finishing operations, regulations, testing and customer acceptance issues. Attendees will also be given an in-depth tour of the laboratory.

The Introduction to Leather Testing Workshop is designed for individuals that need a comprehensive understanding of both the theory and application of a wide array of standard test methods in use in the leather industry. The workshop is a blend of class room instruction along with significant time for hands on application in the laboratory. Participants will be able to perform many of these test methods and techniques on the provided leather samples or on their own samples.
