Evancliffe Leathercraft was set up and is run by Clive & Wendy Elsdon. They first developed an interest in leatherwork as an offshoot of Green Woodworking. The first leatherwork they undertook was the design and manufacture of leather tool guards and cases for many varied green woodworking tools, such as draw knives, spoke shaves, froes, carving knives etc. This lead to an interest in leatherwork in general and then enrolment on the first QCF Level 2 Creative Craft Leathercraftcourse at Northumberland College’s Hexham Centre. Both Clive & Wendy successfully completed the course.
