The Leathery, the studio of artisan Jim Mills at 170 Weggery Drive, was one of the stops on the weekend Arts Trail,.

Immediately upon entering we were much taken by the range of quirky items on display and Jim told us he runs steam punk classes for those who want to design their own pieces. Initially he only did two courses a year, now it’s twenty a year and he can see it reaching thirty.
