I am interested in learning more about leather craft and making my own stuff from leather.

Are there any fellow leather workers here? It would be great to get a small group together and share knowledge and tips for suppliers and stuff.

so far I can think of

Hello!
I have a few leather plans (including making personalised leather stamps) , planning on going to JT Batchelor (a leather stockist in Dalston - any requests, shout) on Monday to get some leather for some projects (and get some leather tools for the Makers Space…as we don’t have any atm.)

Their website doesn’t have much, I’d suggest waiting on getting tools, just so we can discuss what we think it’s needed.

I mean feel free if you think they are good :D, just trying to get a discussion going before we start throwing money. :smiley:

Thier website is rubbish - but the store is proper old school tannery, highly recommend a visit.

I may have broken most of my leather tools making a bit of costume (don’t ask) so need to re-tool…i’m planning on leaving them in the Leather drawer for people to use (only the basics like basic stamps/bevels, swival blade etc.)

Hello! I’v done a lot of laser engraving on leather, and also used laser to cut pieces and pre-piece holes. Happy to help if you have any questions about those :slight_smile:

I also found that charity shops can be a very good source of cheaper leather if your project can work with small pieces :slight_smile:
