Exhibition: 'Tannery' photographs by Paul Glendell

Black and white photographs by award winning documentary photographer Paul Glendell of the last oak bark tannery in the UK at Colyton, Devon.

The tannery has been processing leather in this traditional way for centuries on the same site to produce top quality leather which is favoured by distinguished shoemakers and top stables for its quality, durability and finish.

This Riverside gallery exhibition at Devon Guild will explain the tanning process, emphasising the time and care taken, as well as showing some beautifully made items crafted from the oak tanned leather.

Open 7 days a week. Free entry.
