Candice Lau

2017 QEST Leathersellers' Company Scholar - Leatherwork

Candice became a leather craftswoman in 2012 after a career in design. Her work is defined by her strong sense of graphics and use of colour and marrying these contemporary ideas with traditional leatherwork, a time honoured craft.

Her desire to learn and understand the craft brought her across the world where she studied at the London College of Fashion in the U.K., a workshop in Hong Kong, the prestigious Scuola del Cuoio in Florence, Italy which was made possible by the QEST Scholarship she received in 2017.

I am just scratching the surface of working with this incredible material ‘leather’ and I am now on the journey to really explore its many possibilities.
