Understanding Leather – from tannery to collection at the Leather Conservation Centre

“During this one week course all of us had the opportunity to gain understanding and practical experience of different leather-making techniques.  We often worked in small teams and, as we came from different backgrounds and our interests in leather-making varied, this led to a range of very informative questions and discussions.  I am grateful to have been able to participate in this intense course, I have gained a large amount of knowledge and have been able to pass some of what I learned to my colleagues at the Oxford Conservation Consortium.”
