Sheridan College – WCA 220
Thursday 05/18 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
All skill levels welcome!
Workshop Description: This class will go over how to take an order, how to take measurements and apply measurements to the pattern. I will demonstrate how to lay out the pattern on leather in an easy, simple, fast and efficient way, how to make adjustments on existing chinks to make them fit correctly, construction order, and anything you want to discuss that has to do with this style. You will go away with having the knowledge to build your first pair, or tips on making your 50th+ pair more efficient…guaranteed! You will get the choice of a Round Leg or Square Leg Pattern Pack to take home with you.
Materials to bring: Notebook for notes and chaps for samples to talk about.
Workshop Instructor: Julie has been doing leatherwork and building custom leather goods for 43 years. She started working with leather in her dad’s leather shop he set up in their tack room. She attended saddle making school at Spokane Falls Community College with Jesse Smith in the early 80’s. Her first job was in Laramie, Wyoming building saddles at The Boardwalk for Rob Vogel. She then ran Ellensburg Saddle Company in Ellensburg, Washington with her husband. After going their separate ways, Julie opened Julie Baugher Leather Design and continued her custom work. Now, Julie Baugher Leather Design is a full-time leather working school specializing in chap making, but also caters to any level of leather work from beginner to advanced. Julie also has a line of chap patterns that she has created and sells online. Her love of working with leather continues, but her heart really lies with teaching others this craft that has been so good to her. #useyourgifts
