Comprehensive Cinchmaking

WITH DANA & TRACY EKLUND

 In this course you will learn techniques that are applicable to building single and double layer straight cinches with woven centers, pony or draft sized cinches, breast collars, as well as how to plan other projects. If you’ve never tied before, that’s ok! We start from ground zero, and build from there. If you have tied before, we have still gotten feedback from both our in person and previous online class that the information was very helpful! We not only go over cinch construction itself, but also cinch fit, saddle rigging considerations, measuring for cinches/breastcollars, as well as planning design work.

We go in depth into not just the “how” of cinch making, but the “why” as well. Understanding the reason for the techniques will help build a foundation that will allow you to adapt/improve previous projects, construct a “plan” for new projects, and most importantly will help you find solutions when you hit a roadblock. There is more than one “right” way to do a lot of this- our goal is to equip students with knowledge that will help you be able to make a plan to tackle new things that you, or maybe anyone else, hasn’t tried yet.

OK I CAN TIE CINCHES NOW HOW ABOUT TYING SOME BUTTONS ON BRACELETS?

I went to Big Sky Mohair cinch class just looking for something to do and maybe be able to make cinches for my family. My little hobby has turned into a full time job!  Dana and Tracy were absolutely awesome to learn the basics from! I loved the class and would highly recommend it!!
