Martin Ashworth is a Leather Craftsman who uses the skills and techniques of many different leather crafts. His unique business, The Leather Workshop, undertakes commissions and repair work for clients around the world. Every challenge is different, from making saddles, restoring and repairing antique leather goods, to even fixing the leather straps on a German tourist’s wooden leg.

The Leather Workshop is located on Anglesey, in North Wales. Checkout Martins’s website to see some of the before and after photos of his repair and restoration projects.
