About The Instructor
Joshua Von War-Bear
Jack of all trades and best known as that guy you haven't heard of yet, this rugged gentleman specializes in a variety of quick-handed creativity. Most of his body of work is in leatherworking, prop blade-making, woodwork and illustration, but is always keen to get his hands dirty learning new trades Working hard and keeping busy with film jobs, prop making, theme park building as well as vending and teaching panels at conventions and renaissance faires, this man is elusive to say the least. Known as a soft-spoken, charming and all-around fun fellow, this Georgia native is a dedicated artist that seeks to devote himself as much to his craft as possible. He is currently based in Utah, and working to achieve that all too familiar goal of making a career out of being oneself.
