Leatherwork, anyone?

Hello!
I'm new to Wet Canvas, and I joined because I am starting to get back into painting and 2D artwork after several years making and selling masks. I'll be mostly using the watercolour forum, but as I am still making masks regularly, I may occasionally post something wearable here.
I'll also be more than happy to share knowledge on leather work and mask making should anyone be interested.
Are there any other leather-workers here?

Ooh, maskmaking sounds interesting. I have done some leather sewing and sculpting, mostly in conjunction with garments. I'd like to hear about your techniques.

I did a little piece -- it's the simplest of techniques, shaped, glued, and painted. The Aegis of Athena, here on my blog.

I make leather formed masks. I just started doing it about a year ago so I'm still pretty new to it, but I do tooling, painting, dyeing and forming. I really love it.

I have some leather crafting tools and have done some quite some years ago intend on eventually getting around to it but would love to see what you have done. My Granny was from Monmouth and my Mum is near Ledbury, anywhere near you?
