Jim Jackson, an internationally recognized artist, is a leather tooler in the tradition of Otto F. Ernst and Don King. Jim gives demonstrations and holds classes and clinics for all ages in this art so closely associated with Sheridan. In alignment with one of The Brinton’s core missions of education, Jackson’s efforts not only preserve techniques of leather tooling and stamping, but convey them to future generations. In addition, samples of Jackson’s leather and mixed media creations are for sale at the Brinton Museum Store.
