Workshop Description: What are some of the different regional styles that have influenced Western Floral Carving and where did they come from? In our day of modern technology, Western Floral Carving has become somewhat homogenized to the point that the distinctness of these styles is beginning to fade. If you would like to learn more about the history and heritage of Western Floral Carving, come spend the day with Jim Linnell. While this history is being shared, students will be carving a design adapted from a saddle maker that first started building saddles in Wyoming in 1868, Frank Meanea. This workshop is for the true student of the craft.

Materials to bring: Stamping surface, mallet, swivel knife, stylus, wing dividers, favorite floral carving stamps suitable for medium size patterns, favorite border stamps.

Workshop Instructor: Born and raised on a ranch in eastern Montana, Jim Linnell has had leather working in his blood ever since his first visit to the Miles City Saddlery. Now, after spending the last 50+ years working with leather, those sounds and smells are still a part of his life. Through the business he started in retirement, www.elktracksstudio.com, Jim instructed over 10,000 students during the shutdown caused by COVID. Whether in a large group or private classes, Jim is always ready to share his passion and knowledge of leather working. He is the 2002 recipient of the Al Stohlman Award for Achievement in Leathercraft.
