    Cal reacted to aaronc for a link, Bill Smith Bag and Horn Shop   
    This is my buddy Bill Smith's shop. I spend a lot of time there as per some of my posts here on the Patriot. Bill stopped doing scrimshaw work years ago,...so now that's my contribution...along with some horn making. I assure you everything here is proudly handcrafted,..it all starts with raw horn and leather. Every stitch is by hand,..every image on a horn is drawn by hand using historical reference,..no tracing paper or electric tools. 
     
    Thanks for the opportunity to share. -Aaron

    Cal reacted to John Morris for a link, The Honourable Company of Horners   
    A Guild of Contemporary Horn Workers and Collectors
    In 1996, Roland Cadle of Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, who had long been interested in the historic 18th Century horn trade, conceived the idea of hosting a “Horn Fair” at the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA.  The horn fair consisted of a series of seminars and exhibits on the subjects of collecting and making objects from cow horn.  It was such a positive experience for those who attended that eleven workers and collectors met afterwards to form a new organization called the Honourable Company of Horners (HCH).  The founding members decided that the purpose of the organization would be to promote and preserve the knowledge of horn working.  Officers were elected and the members decided to meet each year to hold seminars and conduct business in order to fulfill the mission of the organization.

    Cal reacted to John Morris for a link, North House Folk School   
    North House was founded in 1997 by a small handful of inspired locals passionate about traditional craft and cooperative learning. When we published the first catalog of 12 courses (including Inuit kayak building, Scandinavian bowl carving, and canoe paddle making), North House didn't yet have a home — or even a classroom. However, two old forest service buildings on the harbor serendipitously became available, and North House settled in and began building a campus.
    Campus has changed and expanded over the years, but those two original buildings — the red building and the blue building — are still at its heart. North House has thrived over the ensuing two decades, and now hosts over 350 classes and 3,000 students per year, and connects students and instructors from all over the state, country, and world.
