Switzerland Project

Daniel and Loren – 1987
Daniel and Loren – 2017

In 2018 we teamed up with Daniel and Noelle Hess in Switzerland to do two one-week workshops. Daniel and Noelle had just celebrated their 30th year of western saddle making, after learning from us in 1987! Since then they have built western saddles along with harness making. Because Switzerland has an extensive apprenticeship program, all of our students had experience which allowed us to all achieve great things! Living with the Hess’s in their 250 year old barn/home/shop was an added delight!
