Pippa Dore Hand-Tooled Leathercraft

Pippa Dore Hand-Tooled Leathercraft is a local business designing and creating beautiful hand crafted leather products. Her unique range includes notebooks, wallets, purses, key rings, belts and dog collars.

I first started working in leathercraft around thirty years ago when I learnt how to mend broken saddlery for the local riding schools. From here, I moved onto more decorative work and learnt how to tool patterns onto leather and make things like belts, dog collars and diaries.

I like to make the kind of things that I would like to own myself. I love designing my own patterns and carving them onto the leather, this makes each and every piece totally unique.

I also take in leather repairs of all types and last year I mended many things including a music bag, racing girths, bridles, headcollars and a lot of very ancient harness collars. It’s very satisfying to take something that is broken and make it useful again and leather is such a versatile material that just gets better with age.

My workshop is also the laundry room and the place where I store all my home made jams and cider! It’s a very cosy place to work with a cup of tea and the radio and my sheep outside the window. Over the years I have run classes on leather craft, teaching adults the various techniques to make their own notebooks, belts and wallets.

I absolutely love being a part of Achonry Farmers Market, for me it is the start of the weekend and I always go home with full bags and a happy mood. It’s such a friendly, relaxed and safe place for all ages. When we moved to Sligo in 2020, we knew nobody in this area and the market was a great place to meet people. I still can’t believe just how lucky we were to not just find a lovely home, but to find it in the nicest area I’ve ever visited with such a great community spirit. I feel very lucky.

Thomas Gallagher – Artist

I started crafting wooden plaques when I was sixteen. This continued off and on over the past twenty-eight years working with wood and painting.

I have my kids involved especially during the lockdowns, the gift of art just keeps on giving. Achonry Farmers Market allows people see what’s new, be it cribs, plaques, or paintings. So, in essence, it’s my good fortune to have Achonry Market at our door.

Tea’s Little Corner

Hi, my name is Tea and I started my little business in early 2020. I’ve always loved making my own little creations at home and for friends.

Creating my resin designs I found a new and unique way to express myself in a manner I hadn’t tried before. I was delighted to be able to capture certain moments in my life with resin. It’s a fantastic way to keep those treasured moments with you forever. And I wanted to share my vision with others.

I’ve been selling online and through my Facebook page, but I really love the personal interaction with customers at the markets. We all have our unique way of seeing things in life and I really enjoy all the different reactions to my products when people look at them. I’ve had so many people picking up an item and say “wow, that’s really beautiful, what is that for?”

I love making new items, so if you don’t see what you are looking for, please ask me, I might be able to make it for you

See you all soon.

Peace & Love,
Tea
