Len Bytheway – Leatherwork

Len Bytheway draws inspiration from saddlers and craft workers worldwide applying a blend of traditional skills such as hand and machine stitching, carving, embossing, braiding and carving techniques.

Len has been working in leather for almost 50 years and specialises in wet forming techniques – soaked leather is stretched over custom made timber shapes or ‘forms’ to create three-dimensional objects which are combined to construct his unique art.

Leatherwork group

The informal “Leather Lounge Lizards” a group of local leatherwork enthusiasts will show their work, offer items for sale and run demonstrations of leatherwork techniques throughout the days.
