Just finished up a class with Mark Barcus! I was hesitant to go to a class, since I’d already built several pairs of chaps and felt I had a pretty decent grasp of how to make a good, solid pair. I wish I hadn’t waited this long! Mark did a superb job of explaining how to move from building a good set to an outstanding one. He was able to explain the ‘why’ behind everything from both a functional perspective and a historical one. He covered the big pictures and the small details, showing plenty of examples along the way. I didn’t expect the advice on the business side of the work, but that will be very useful. I’m leaving with a solid grasp on building a pattern from scratch - not just for ch inks but for nearly any style - and how to end up with a pair that fits perfectly and hangs just right, as well as the knowledge to build them to a high standard. I’m using my tools better and in ways I hadn’t considered, and am utilizing the leather itself more effectively. I learned an entirely new method for finishing edges that make them look amazing, even on chap leather. For anyone considering taking a class with Mark, even for seasoned leatherworkers, it’s worth every dollar! Nikki Warren

Here at Cow Camp Saddlery we are a custom leather shop. We make the items you need to your specifications by hand using only the best leathers that we can buy. We cut it out by hand one piece at a time, then tool the pattern that you like. We then hand rub all the edges. We can make most anything that you might need.

Call us at 307-340-2361 for more information.
