Beyond the Chair, Bootblacking 201 - Restoration and Repair

You have leather, it gets old, worn and tired. What do you do with it? Should you throw it away? What if it got left out in the rain and got mildewed? Chunks of leather missing from the toe or heel of your high shines? Leather so dry it is stiff and faded? Is your favorite jacket faded and torn?

This is when it is time to talk restoration and repair techniques. Come join me in a presentation of leather restoration techniques and repair tricks of the trade. I will show you that there is hope for some of those pieces of leather that you may be thinking are beyond help.

Feel free to bring some pieces for demo/ hands on purposes. I will provide examples of many types of repair.
