More about the Old-Time Leather Workshop and American Indian Collection Display Cases:

An old-time leather workshop with world-renowned leather crafter & artist James F. Jackson.

He will set up the shop with his collection of antique tools in the old Brinton Ranch Bunkhouse addition to the Ranch Foreman's House.
This will allow for a permanent display as well as demonstrations for our visitors and workshops for children and adults.
Goal to raise $40,000 for adapting the existing space, setting up the workshop, and wages for our leather artist.

Display Cases for our new rare American Indian Collection acquisitions, so we can share these exquisite objects with our visitors:
Blackfeet War Chief's Shirt and Leggings, 1830s
Apache Woman's Dress and Moccasins, 1850s
Goal to raise $40,000 to build archivally safe mounts and custom museum display cases for the new objects to go on exhibit in the John and Adrienne Mars American Indian Gallery this spring.
