Description of Apprenticeship:

I am looking to work with leather in any medium, but the more hand tooling involved the better. I would like to make a career working with leather and would prefer either western style products (i.e saddles/holsters/ belts) or historical reproductions (i.e. Armour). I understand the fine tooling skills for either of my preferred fields can be learned making a number of other items and would be willing to work in one aspect of the leather trade while using my preferred crafts for personal projects.

I would need a paid apprentice dependent on the cost of living for the area it is in. I do not expect to make a fortune while learning the trade and would be more than willing to live on the bare essentials for a few years working for minimum wage until I am capable of producing enough quality work to warrant a raise or some form of commission. The main concern for any apprenticeship would be food and housing for the duration.
