I run a leather craft business from my studio at home, making and hand carving leather goods. I also run beginner, intermediate and advanced leather craft courses. I have been a leather and wood craftsmen for 35 years and use traditional techniques and tools which I originally developed in New Zealand where I grew up. By the end of the beginners course, students will have the skills needed to do their own simple leather repairs and create simple pouches or wallets from scratch.
A lovely home cooked meal.
Tea, coffee and buscuits to keep us going.
All materials and tools are provided.
I conduct workshops at my studio in Sheffield. The space makes me feel at home with reminders of the 200 year old miner's hut on New Zealand's West Coast, that I spent 15 lovely years in. This was where my inspiration for leather work really took off.
