Videos: Overcoming Obstacles to Find Your Footing

Today’s videos are an inspirational look at two different leatherworkers who give some invaluable advice for both beginning craftsman and for those who are still trying to find steady footing in a budding business.

I was struck by the enthusiasm Graham felt for starting the craft after visiting a cowboy shop in America and of Claire’s determination to grow her business and find a better life for her and her son, despite their financial limitations.

Together, Graham and Claire paint a very optimistic picture for those of us who feel passionate about the craft, but are still in the process of discovering our creative niche and unique voice.
