Leatherwork

Hide travel bag
Hand stitched hide travel bag, now over 20 years old

I have always been an enthusiastic hobbyist and collector and indeed have collected many new hobbies over the years.


As well as making art, sculpture and music I enjoy working with leather. I am completely self taught from books and the internet but only use my own designs. Each piece is a hand sewn “one-off” with no use of machines.


Working with leather requires patience, care and precision to achieve the best results, much like dentistry.


I make many types of pieces but with a particular emphasis on boxes.

* Hide watch box with calf hinge and tan suede lining

* Calf document folio with piped edges, hide details and brass buckles
