About Jack Miller

For the past 23 years I have been passionately studying, practicing and teaching the art of leathercraft on a regular basis. During that time I have worked within the Human Services throughout various fields. I currently works as a youth drug and alcohol support worker and continue to facilitate leathercraft workshops throughout various settings within the wider community around Melbourne.

Having introduced leathercraft to such groups as youth and correctional Services, I received a great deal of positive feedback and witnessed uplifting results from those who participated. I endeavour to continue offering the opportunity for others to encounter the many benefits and creativity associated with this craft.
