Saddle making workshop

The saddle is a supportive structure that connects creature to rider. Saddlery comprises of a series of techniques that cut, mould and stitch particular pattern pieces of leather to fit both creature and rider. This workshop references and re-appropriates these techniques to connect body to bicycle. The workshop will be run by Ellie and Theo.

During her Architecture Undergraduate Degree BSc Ellie experimented with leather as a building technique to challenge leather’s structural potential. Since graduating Ellie has been working in London. Theo is an architecture BSc graduate and leather worker. He has learnt his craft through the resources of the internet, and inspection of made-goods. This lack of conventional training results in unusual design resolutions.
