Workshop Description: Bob’s goal for this class is to provide each student with the knowledge and confidence to make chaps for
personal use or as a foundation if going into business. Subject matter offered is: The art of taking
orders, taking proper measurements, understanding what they mean, and applying them to use;
Drawing and/or adjusting patterns; Understanding what constitutes a good fit; Construction methods;
Selecting leather; and Layout and finishing touches. Understanding the differences in chaps, chinks and
Armitas and what is unique about each will be covered. The class will be informal, questions are welcome, and chaps and chinks etc. will be on display for your inspection.

Materials to bring: Notepad, pencil and camera. Optional: Chaps/Chinks/Armitas you have made.

Workshop Instructor: Bob has been carving leather since 1959 and making saddles since 1962. As past president of the Colorado Saddle Makers Association, as well as being one of its founders, he is accustomed to teaching saddle making and leather carving at its seminars as well as for 4-H and in his own saddle shop. Bob is primarily self-taught and is eager to share his knowledge with others. He is a recipient of the Howard Munsell Award for promotion of the art of saddle making, and in 2010 he received the Al Stohlman Award for Achievement in Leathercraft.
