The buckle will be attached using snaps or bookbinding screws (your choice). This workshop will be taught in English and German.

Workshop Instructor: Jürgen Volbach is a leatherworker from Cologne, Germany, who had his first lessons 30 years ago with the famous boot and saddle maker, Don Atkinson in Kerrville/Ingram, Texas. He worked with leather every day, making leather designs and toolings and carvings for clients using old and new leather skills. In recent years, he has used modeling tools more and more in his leatherwork, especially with 3-dimensional pieces. Jürgen teaches many workshops in his work space in Cologne and other countries/towns to teach students the different techniques. He is the 2020 recipient of the Al Stohlman Award for Achievement in Leathercraft. Jürgen speaks German and English.
