Our challenge is to raise funds to fit out our new home and ensure that our objects are properly stored. We need £120,000 per year in order to remain open to the public. Whether you’d like to become a Friend of the Museum of Leathercraft or make a one-off donation, all support is welcome.

Do you shop online?

Consider joining GoRaise and helping the Museum of Leathercraft to raise money every time you shop. It won’t cost you a penny, and all money raised will go towards developing our visitor services.

If you shop with Amazon, consider checking out with Amazon Smile. Support the Museum of Leathercraft and every time you make an eligible purchase, Amazon will donate a percentage to us on your behalf. More importantly, it won’t cost you a penny!

Become a volunteer

Volunteers are an essential part of the museum- from research and collections-care to administration. We’ll be welcoming volunteers once we’ve reopened, please visit our volunteer page to find out more.

Become a friend

Let’s be friends! We’re in the process of developing an exciting new Friends package for 2021. With membership starting from as little as £10 per month, you can be a part of this amazing museum. If you’d like to learn more, register your interest by email now.

Leave a legacy

Donations of any size ensure we can continue to research, care for and educate people about historic leather artefacts, and are invaluable and appreciated by the museum.

Become a patron

Come on board as a trustee to help us to shape the development of the Museum of Leathercraft and how it tells the story of leather to the public. Whether it be a one-off donation or continued support, we would love to meet you. Contact us
