Leather Tooling Workshop
In conjunction with its new exhibition, Rodeo School by Mel Stone, the Branigan Cultural Center will host a workshop on leather tooling for ages 12 and up. The workshop takes place Saturday, April 19 at 12 pm. The program is free and open to the public.
Leather tooling is a classic Western art and has been used to decorate belts, handbags, saddles, and other leather goods. In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of leather tooling technique and design composition. After practicing the creation and placement of stamps, participants will create a bookmark of their own design. Registration is not required and all materials will be provided.
The Branigan Cultural Center is located at 501 North Main Street. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. For more information, contact the Branigan Cultural Center at (575) 541-2154 or visit the Center’s website at las-cruces.org/museums.
