I’m currently in Pipestone, MN travelling for the most of the next 7 weeks performing my show. This week in my hotel room I’m working on making some 4 plait beginner’s bullwhips.
I’m working on making six of these bullwhips in cowhide. Currently I have most of them cut out, and should be able to get started plaiting tomorrow. Over the summer I perfected my “Hotel Whip Workshop” technique and have come up with a very simple way to make whips in a hotel room.
I’m thinking I might make a video of making one of these whips and offer it as an into to whip making. You can get all of the needed supplies for cheap at a hardware store and you don’t need a lot of space, so I think it’d be a good lesson for “urban” whip makers.
