We are proud to be exhibiting at two shows early in our season with others who are the best in our medium, and that give a fair representation of the best in the field.
One of the oldest materials used by man, humans have been manipulating leather since prehistoric times to to clothe us, to carry things, as ornamental items, to keep our pants up, aide in our sexual fantasies, tether our animals, and so much more.
Most of us in this field are self taught, as there are very few educational opportunities available.
We are a small group, it is a laborious medium that mistakes cannot be made in, due to the nature of working in skins made one at a time, and most of us who have survived have been perfecting our craft for a very long time, some as custom sandal makers during the Woodstock era. There are no leather guilds or prizes to keep us going,
so Kudos to the shows that jury in the best in the medium of Leather!
If you have been to the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, The American Craft Exposition in Evanston, Ill, The Washington or Westchester Craft Show, or any of the other top shows in the country, then you won’t want to miss The Berkshire Craft Fair, coming to town next week. Many of the same artists are exhibiting here. Small by comparison, it is a fundraiser for a wonderful high school that is not ignoring the arts, and in a community that is steeped in creativity with Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, Mass Moca, all in the area. The scale of the show makes for a good relaxed shopping experience before you head out to enjoy the rest of what the area has to offer. Visit our booth to see Toshiki and Maryszka shearlings, in the hall by the food court. Click here for more info.
