Workshop Description: In this full day class, students will learn to carve Jim Linnell’s Spirit Horse using inverted carving techniques. Inverted techniques can be confusing and it can be hard to understand how it can ever appear to be three-dimensional. While carving this unique and challenging pattern, students will learn how to create impressive three-dimensional effects using their swivel knife, beveler and shading stamps to bring out the rich and beautiful burnish of oak tanned leather.

Materials to bring: Stamping surface, mallet, wing dividers, swivel knife & strop, stylus, modelling spoon, variety of sizes of checkered bevelers, pointed figure carving bevelers, fine textured background tools such as A98 or A99, textured pear shaders in a variety of sizes (vertical lined or checkered preferred), fine hair blade, diagonal lined bevelers or leaf liner.

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.
