2011 Keynote Speaker: Jeremy Bradshaw


The 2011 Keynote Speaker is micro-hawker and acclaimed hood maker, photographer, and all around great guy Jeremy Bradshaw.  Jeremy has been a falconer for 15 years, with a passion for small hawks while focusing on merlins.  Having a broad understanding and appreciation of micro-hawking Jeremy will share his knowledge and expertise, something a lot of members have been asking for recently.  Jeremy has also offered to conduct a hood making workshop for those aspiring hood makers out there.  Jeremy is the only full time hood maker and as such is a truly gifted artist that makes a beautiful hood.  If you have ever wondered what goes into making a nice hood or if you have a question about how to lay a clean stitch this is your opportunity to learn from a master.
