New Zealand Leather Artisans Conference 2017

The New Zealand Leather Artisans Conference was held in Palmerston North in early May where a small number of participants enjoyed workshops and demonstrations from local and international tutors. 

Workshops held included a saddle bag, covered bottle, photo album & pendant using moulds, stirrup bag, a beginners workshop and we dabbled in marble dyeing too. 

All in all, a brilliant week where the learning never stops. Thanks to Tim Swainson, Carene Jenkins & Fiona Thompson for the hard work and dedication to make it happen.

In the name of leather, we are spreading the word that artisans all over the world can come together, share ideas, learn techniques, network with likeminded people, make lasting friendships and share our passion.  We look forward to the next conference in a few years time.
