About the instructor: Clair Kehrberg
Well, hello. My name is Clair. For as long as I can remember I have loved anything creative. My specialty is leatherwork, everything from traditional hand carved leather to painting and stitching. I love to create.
My journey in leather craft began in high school, where I spent my senior year studying with local saddle maker and friend, Tom Berry. After high school I attended a two year saddle making coarse with professor Verlane Desgrange at Spokane Falls Community College in Spokane Washington. It was an intense coarse were I learned traditional floral carving, the correct hand stitching methods, pattern making and construction and the mechanics of fine leather goods and western saddles. Though it was intense, it was the best foundation available in the world and it really set me on my path.
After graduating from Saddle Making School, I went on to study with Severe Bros Saddlery in Pendleton Oregon, home of the Pendleton Roundup then finally opened my own shop in the fall of 2004.
I study with master leather crafters when ever I can. Some of the craftsmen I have studied with included world famous saddle maker, Dale Harwood and boot maker Mo Welfl.
At this point I have done some teaching as well. Teaching traditional leather tooling and writing "how to" articles for the crafters magazine, The Leather Crafters & Saddlers Journal.
We will paint these cute pumpkins for you to take home or give as a gift. We will be painting in acrylics on 16x20 canvas. This class is suitable for beginners through advanced. Adults and youth ages 12 and up.
