In his pursuit for a perfect fusion of traditional and modern leather craftsmanship and sculpture, Len Bytheway creates wearable art and pieces that are striking and often confronting.

Working in leather for almost 50 years, Len draws inspiration from saddlers and crafts workers worldwide applying a blend of traditional skills and contemporary techniques. Len specialises in wet forming processes where soaked leather is stretched over custom made timber shapes or forms to create three-dimensional objects which are combined to construct his unique art.

There are obvious influences from the Surrealist movement, married with Steam Punk Art to create wearable art that challenges the viewer.   

There will be ongoing demonstrations of leather working techniques over the weekend.
