Mark Jones


Leather Artist

artist website

Mark sees good leathercraft – a bag, purse or backpack – as standing on its own as a decorative object as well as being functional.

He is a professional designer and leather craftsman, beginning his career after studying shoe making and drawing in Sydney.

He was awarded a ‘Craftmark’ by the Craft Council of Australia, and has presented his work at design fairs in Germany, at Gift Fairs in San Francisco and spearheaded a joint venture with Austrade, putting craftspeople into US trade shows.

Mark works from a purpose built studio on the NSW Central coast, and also teaches leathercraft and bagmaking. A member of T’Arts since its inception, Mark enjoys the collegial engagement, which keeps him stimulated with new ideas and designs, and busy in his studio.



There’s so much to look at, we suggest you come and browse. If you just can’t choose between the 2 or 3 (or more) items you simply have to have, why not take a moment to sit down and relax, and have lunch or coffee at one of the cafes just next to our gallery. And when you come back in, you’ll know exactly which work of art is right for you.

Come and find us in Gay's Arcade, inside Adelaide Arcade in Rundle Mall, Adeaide. We’d love to see you.
