Workshop Description: The sunflower has become one of the most frequently tooled flowers as of late. And requests to produce them in leather just keep coming in from the novice as well as professional leather crafter. In this workshop Steve will show you how to create sunflowers with motion and incredible depth. The techniques you will learn can be transferred to all of your floral tooling to give you that extra eye-catching appeal that stands out from the crowd.

Materials to bring: Swivel knife (sharp), tooling surface, floral carving stamps (including several sizes of thumbprint or pear shaders; lined are preferred), center shader, modeling spoon or back beveler, ball end modeling spoon, stop, undershots or lifters (preferably larger sizes), seeders (round & lined, at least 3 different sizes), maul/mallet, bevelers (medium angle preferred), small mule foot, pointed beveler, oval seeders (if you have them), and extra light or magnification, if you need it (supply your own extension cord and floor tape).

Workshop Instructor: Steve has been dabbling in leather for 20 years, completing projects of all levels and ambitions, but his main focus has always been creating a unique look that blends many traditional aspects and styles of tooling to form an unpredictable, fresh look to an age-old medium. Many have tried to label his style, often calling him the sunflower guy, but his main focus is to bring motion into his leather tooling.

Workshop Sponsors: Hermann Oak Leather Co. and Tandy Leather
