Sheridan College – WCA 137
Friday 05/19 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
All skill levels welcome!
Workshop Description: In most of his classes, Jim Linnell offers insights or tips on how to use your modeling spoon to finesse your leather carving in a number of different ways; it really is an incredible tool! This workshop is for those who would really like to learn what all it can do.
This workshop includes all of those tips in one setting, plus much more on modeling spoon magic. Jim will also be discussing and demonstrating how to use other modeling tools, such as the undercut and ball-end stylus tools. Jim will also share how he modifies his modelling tool so he can create finer details in his work.
Similar to the Fearless Swivel Knife Use workshop that Jim teaches (and always sells out), this is the type of class that will improve all of your leather projects: floral carving, figure carving, embossing, and more!
Materials to bring: In addition to the various modelling tools in your collection, plan to bring your swivel knife, stylus, stamping surface, mallet, and basic stamping tools.
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.
Workshop Sponsors: Hermann Oak Leather Co. and Tandy Leather
