ANNOUNCEMENT TO ALL LEATHER TOOLERS!The generous folks at the Western Folklife Center are repeating their "Gathering of Masters" carving class again this year! The event is being held in conjunction with the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, The Great Basin Gear Show and Sale and a number of related trade shows, in Elko, NV.
Last year's event was a sellout, so if you missed that class, this is your chance!
The format is designed for intermediate toolers. Last years students included intermediate and advanced carvers and professional saddle makers as well. Students chose patterns from the examples provided by the instructors and were assisted over the two days in the completion of their piece.
Last year's lineup of award winning instructors are returning again this year. They are Don Butler, Steve Mecum Gaylerd Thissle, Doug Krause, Andy Stevens and Bob Park. This group of instructors represent a wide variety of carving styles which affords the student with a unique opportunity to expand their skills.
