Paul Dore – leatherwork tutor
Paul trained as a cabinet maker, crafting bespoke furniture from a range of beautiful woods. He also has a love of the outdoors and a passion for making things from the materials nature provides. Paul’s involvement in Historical Re-Enactment led him to develop his skills to make his own equipment and uniform items in Wool, Canvas, Wood and Leather.
In 2014 he left Cabinet making to pursue his dream of becoming a self employed leatherworker. More recently he has started running courses in Firecraft, Archery, Foraging and Leathercraft. We are delighted he has agreed to share his skills and become part of our team of talented tutors.
