Two weeks ago, I posted an interview of leatherworking master and highly respected Youtuber, Nigel Armitage. This week, we’re featuring some of his work in a dedicated post. Enjoy!
Check out more of Nigel’s work at www.armitageleather.com
What fantastic work! Thanks for the follow-up post.
May I suggest you try to profile Arno Buck? I found him when you featured a couple of his sheaths, but I think his incredibly fine work merits a post like this. Thanks for all you do!
I found Mr Armitage and his you tube videos about a year ago. For anyone who is looking for help with saddle stitching he has one video that goes into extreme detail and helped me emmensely.
Merci beaucoup pour ce partage.
Armitage est un artisan comme on aimerait en devenir un 🙂
Très joli travail, soigné et élégant.
Thank you for sharing.
Armitage is a craftsman as we would like to become one 🙂
Very nice work, neat and stylish.
Keep oon writing, grеat job!
Thanks, friend! I’m glad you are enjoying our posts!
Just ordered a pattern from him and 30 seconds later found this email! LOVE his work!
Sounds like some leatherworking serendipity to me!
Nigel is a perfect blend of robustness and detail. His work is not too “european,” but still quite elegant. Personally his work is too equestrian and not enough “european,” for me, but his explanations, “overengineering,” and wry sense of humor make him a real treasure. I own his book, watched all of his YouTube videos, and subscribe to his vimeo. Many Leather Workers do not actually explain the reasoning for a specific technique but rather give you a step by step. Which makes a good “paint by numbers,” leatherworker rather than a craftsman with a deep understanding of the craft itself. Nigel on the other hand gives you the step by step and the reasoning behind each individual step. I cannot recommend him enough. Even if you do not like his specific leatherwork style learning from him will elevate your leatherwork. If he ever comes back to the US, I will certainly make the trek wherever he will be teaching. Sorry for the long rant. Just felt compelled to write about Nigel since he’s not very active on social media apart from his Vimeo and Youtube.
Thank you for the post!
Agreed on all points! Nigel is a great friend and resource and we are eager to have him back in the US for another class as soon as we can.
