The Leather Shop is currently not open to the public, due to concern for the well being of our staff and visitors. 

Jim Jackson in front of the Quarter Circle A Leather Shop

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. As one of the many membership benefits for Collector and up Museum Members Jim will take commissions for custom orders!
