Workshop Description: This workshop is designed to focus on the aspects of tooling that can be improved upon through technique and repetition. There will be different tooling patterns to choose from that will help to challenge your particular tooling skill level. Bring your known “pain point” areas to this class and let’s work on them together to learn how to improve in those areas. We will spend 4 hours carving, stamping, discussing and improving our techniques in floral carving and stamping. Tooling is a lifelong study and guided practice is the fastest way to dialing in your art. This class is for intermediate level floral carvers with experience who want to improve their current skill set.

Materials to bring: Floral stamping/carving tools, mallet/maul, stylus, swivel knives, strop, stamping stone, transfer paper, and pencil.

Workshop Instructor: Don Gonzales become interested in leathercraft while in 8th grade, when a friend’s father shared some simple skills with him. He went from making sheaths and belts and saddle repairs to eventually owning his own shop and going full-time in 2004. He credits Jimmy Plantt for many life lessons and skills learned, in addition to those from his many online friends. In October of 2020, Don launched a new, weekly podcast, Lost Trade. Don lives in Moulton, Texas.

Workshop Sponsors: Hermann Oak Leather Co.
