9th June - 29th September

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Leather Museum, we've brought together the work of many of the country's top contemporary makers, designers and companies working in leather today.  This sumptuous exhibition features work by Val Michael and Neil MacGregor, Caroline Groves, Sarah Williams, and many more.
