Shawn Webster started learning quill work back in 1979. In 1980 he formed a business called SW Quillwork. Shawn was primarily doing "Plains" styled work at that time. In 1985 Shawn met artist H. David Wright while on a horseback ride into the AMM national rendezvous held in Wyoming. Wright quickly sent Shawn all of his extensive photograph collection of Eastern Great Lakes and Woodland Indian quill work. At that time Shawn began his journey as an eastern quill work artist. Shawn now uses nothing but natural dyes for his quill colors, a process that took him 17 years to learn. Shawn says he is still trying to prefect his knowledge of 18th century dyes. . Shawn tries to tan most of his brain tanned leather himself and walnut dyes these hides as well. Shawn is also a skilled gun builder and credits Steve Lodding with the help in that area. You may contact him at any time for custom orders.
