Sheridan College – W 203A
Friday 05/19 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
All skill levels welcome!
Workshop Description: Animals have not been created equally, at least as far as the way they are put together. The fur, hair, wool, or lack of any of those, are all tooled with a different technique. An eagle’s eyes are nothing like the eyes of a guinea pig; some animals sport shiny shells, scales or feathers instead of hair. This workshop is meant to explore any of these traits, and more. If you have a specific animal characteristic which is giving you trouble, bring it along. We can figure it out together.
Materials to bring: Stylus, modeling spoon, swivel knife, strop, mallet, bevelers, matting tools, smooth pear shaders, hair blades, figure bevellers F895, F902, paper and pen, and a tooling surface.
Workshop Instructor: When she was very young, Kathy started her leathercraft career as a 4-H project, not knowing what it would lead to many years later. She has become the recipient of prestigious awards, such as the coveted Al Stohlman Award and Master Leather Artisan of the Year from the Academy of Western Artists. Figure carving has become her primary focus, and she is determined to share everything she has learned.
