Tutor: Victoria White

Coming from an Art History background, leather work is Victoria’s passion, which all started when she got a present from a friend. The notebook didn’t have a cover, and she just couldn’t find one she liked so she decided to make one. So she naturally went to the wholesalers and discovered a world of possibilities and leather. Victoria hasn’t looked back since. She mainly enjoys working with fine Italian tanned hides, due to the superior quality of the skins and also the variety. She creates wallets, bags, notebook covers, portfolios and just about anything you can think of. She is also pursuing a Diploma in Visual Arts in Sydney.
