Tooling leather in its simplest form is creating design and ornamentation on leather with the use of specialized tools. An art form that is ages old, Deana McGuffin joins us to teach a course on leather tooling.

A foray into boot making, these shoes are built on a boot last. Completely fabricated by hand, you will learn how to measure for your shoes, how to cut and prep the leather, linings, inner linings and uppers, and how to construct these shoes from start to glorious finish!

Deana McGuffin, one of the most well-respected bootmakers in the entire known world of bootmakers, joins Sewing Arts to teach boot making - cowboy (and cowgirl) boots, that is.
