About

The start of Jo's leather crafts -

About Me
I am a youngish craftswoman living in Fleet, South Lincs, it’s a rural setting. I help run a smallholding and have lots of animals, (pony, rabbit, chickens, ducks) of my own. The animals take up a lot of my time (alpacas, geese, cats and a dog too!), but in the afternoons leatherwork gets done.
I share a studio with my mum, who also does various crafts. All of my leather items are made in the studio (although some things do end up being stitched on the sofa in front of the tv).
I am self-taught with 6 years’ experience. To start with a friend showed me the basics and then I bought my own tools and practiced, read books about leathercraft, watched videos and practiced some more. I was soon moved out of the house and into the studio because of the noise I was creating. I also managed to break a piece of marble in half… So that was the start, there might still be lots leather off cuts and bits on the floor but I am now the self-taught owner of Jo’s Leather Crafts, and love making all things leather.
