Workshop Description: Every detail of this workshop will be taught, starting with copying the horse heads onto the leather, modeling from the backside to the frontside, to bringing the embossing into the right form. After this, you will learn the right combination of leather dust and rubber gum/cement to fill the back side. Then you will use modeling tools to bring out the shape of the horses’ heads, add hair structure and learn the right way to undercut specific areas to give the horses a living “look”. From there, you can take the artwork home to add any color or antiquing that you wish, or just leave it natural.

Materials to bring: Swivel knife with a small blade (7mm), strop, scalpel and blades, ball and spoon modelers, fine ball point stylus, checkered backgrounders, figure bevelers, maul/mallet, graphite pencil, soft white eraser, water sprayer/mister, stamping stone, and a cutting board.

Workshop Instructor: Jürgen Volbach is a leatherworker from Cologne, Germany, who had his first lessons 30 years ago with the famous boot and saddle maker, Don Atkinson in Kerrville/Ingram, Texas. He worked with leather every day, making leather designs and toolings and carvings for clients using old and new leather skills. In recent years, he has used modeling tools more and more in his leatherwork, especially with 3-dimensional pieces. Jürgen teaches many workshops in his work space in Cologne and other countries/towns to teach students the different techniques. He speaks German and English. He is the 2020 recipient of the Al Stohlman Award for Achievement in Leathercraft.

Workshop Sponsors: Hermann Oak Leather Co., Renia USA, and Tandy Leather
