Our 2017 summer workshop program is fulling underway with leather tooling, sandal making, tote bag making and last but not least, leather belt making. Please take a look at our class schedule to see a full list of available classes. Our first class was run by Brad Cooper of Cooper Saddlery in Buellton, CA. Brad opened his shop last summer and has been hand-making saddles of the high quality American craftsmanship money can buy you. Take a look at the photos below to see Brand in action teaching an 8 student class all about leather carving, shading, casing, coloring and basket weave stamping. Its was a beautiful day in sunny Santa Barbara, watching, learning and taking part in this lost craft.
