Well, a proud day today, working for the huge RAF Cosford Air Base in Shropshire, restoring the officer's mess furniture.

We completed:

  1. 3 three-seater chesterfield sofas, cleaned and protected
  2. 8 bicast wingbacks reflashed with original colour
  3. 4 chesterfield tan tubs restored
Biggest job to date, and for such an important client:chuffed:

Agreed, always surprised there aren't more doing leather, even just cleaning

The two tone is impressive, seen many make a mess of that...

Good work - must be very satisfying!

Yes the questions and discussions on the subject of leather care have dropped off lately, so a double thanks for sharing.

Unfortunately not Kelvin

From an old skool chap who's taught me a great deal over the years and I owe him alot but he doesnt do training anymore, and obviously practising myself in our workshop.

Product knowledge is also has alot to do with it. Theres a vast world of products and techniques out there which help create the finishes you see on leather, unfortunately very little is taught in a classroom. I've found the leather restoration trade to be a very close knit secretive bunch.

Alot of secrets are held close to peoples chests

Any recommendations as where you had your training from?

Hi Kelvin let me know if you want details of our training courses.

A training course is just the start with leather and it is very much an ongoing learning process for many reasons

Leather is an ever changing product as new finishes, colours and improvements in the finishing processes keep us on our toes.

Leather is an individual product unlike a fabric that is produced en mass which makes it much more interesting to work with as every job is different.

As Jared rightly says product knowledge and processes are important as well as understanding leather itself and the more knowledge you gain the better you will get

Nothing hidden with us and on going support and mentoring for as long as you need it

Hope this helps
Cheers
Judyb
