This introductory cinch class focuses primarily on straight cinches. The techniques you learn can be applied to create custom straight cinches, breast collars, belts, hat bands, key chains, and more. Mastering the skills required to make a straight cinch is a prerequisite for more advanced builds like roper and English-style cinches.
