Today I have visited Northampton to see some of the National Leather Collection.
Some wonderful work, From Mandy Havers sculptures, Coptic Shoes, Samuel Pepys wallet. Jugs, Truncheon case, Spanish gilded wall coverings, shagreen and so much more. Beautiful things which just make me want to put my hands to sue and Make things myself.
Northampton was lovely today, is it late summer or early Autumn? People were delightful and I met several ‘enthusiasts’ with whom to talk about Leather. What an amazing material it is.
I shall be returning once the new Museum is properly open and ready to share even more of their collection. A good day indeed.
