All skill levels welcome!
Workshop Description: In this workshop, you will be working along with Ron to make 4-strand stampede strings for your favorite hat. Ron will take you on a braiding journey from beginning to end. Whether you’re just starting out, or you’ve been at this for years, Ron’s decades of braiding, lacing and knot tying experience will bring your skills to a whole new level. Learning this basic braid will allow you to continue braiding and move on to more advanced braiding projects. Ron will also discuss the ring knot, Turk’s head knot and common vaquero horse braiding applications.
Materials to bring: Lacing awl or fid (can be purchased from Ron), any projects you have questions about, notepaper, pencil, camera and questions! Lace will be available.
Workshop Instructor: Ron has worked all over the West – in California, Washington, Arizona and Wyoming – on many ranches where he picked up and mastered the art of braiding. A long-time teacher of the trade, he has also studied under master braiders. He now gives private lessons at his ranch, teaching others his craft of braiding and knot tying in leather and rawhide.
Workshop Sponsors: Y-Knot Lace
