Hand Tooled Leather


Leather is incredibly adaptable in all sorts of forms with endless uses. It's also a fantastic medium for Craft and here's some beautiful examples of how 'hand tooled' leather has been interpreted into 3 beautiful and functional items that get used and enjoyed everyday.

These were crafted by Renee who came along to our Belt Making workshop last week and we're so happy she brought them along so we can share them here.

Here's her lace edged Flying Fish journal cover with amazing detail

And finally, the Flying Fish cropped on Renee's vegetable tanned leather bag with a lovely patina.

It takes a great deal of time, patience and skill to be able to accomplish these beautiful 'tooled' works. We hope they inspire you to explore the craft of leather.
