Join artist and leatherworker Scott Michael Horn in a fast paced jaunt through the basics of turning a simple piece of cowhide into a piece of Art. Each participant will walk away having created something unique, turning a raw piece of saddle leather into a functional and beautiful item that will last for years.

Workshop Date: Saturday, February 17, 2-5PM

Scott's passion for the craft of leatherwork is brought to life with a high-energy interactive teaching style. Technique is mixed with anecdotes about the history, production, and process of crafting saddle leather. The Workshop is centered on creative expression, teaching not only the craft skills but the concepts of how to design your own unique patterns. Scott will demo basic techniques and concepts to the whole class, then set everyone free to follow their whim - creating new patterns from scratch or recreating ones from the demonstration. Each student walks away with 2-3 handmade pieces tooled and dyed right there.

The creative expression and sheer fun of hammering stamp patterns into leather make this an unforgettable high desert experience.
