Sir Chris, a skeleton dragon & a minion!
This is actually the subject of our next leather craft workshop in December - leather workshops
Tree of Gondor belt, hip quiver
Armguards are not just for archers & swordsman, they also have a place in today's world. They are used by glaziers, joiners, harpists - yes! a lady harpist. In fact anybody who needs wrist and or forearm support or protection because of their work or because of weakness or injury.
These are the fore-runners of neoprene type supports & may be more comfortable - ask the grocer in Grange-over-Sands following wrist surgery or the lady at Tatton Old hall.
Remember they are hand made by ourselves so they are made to fit you & all can be customised with colour & carving
oh & they look cool - check out the pink, purple johnny depp wrist brace :) or cute - see the
Jeremiah's Tree of Gondor - very pleased with this one!

Mother's is a longbow &
arrows, son's is Superman!
How about a Minion! The
limit is your imagination!
Long armguard featuring a red squirrel :)
Armguard - Boromir style with Elven writing hand carved on it, Photo's with permission of Beth
Got to be my favourite so far. Greenman handcarved then dyed, based on a drawing. This was a commission piece
Armguard with the front oblique view of a viking ship with initials. Commission from Emily.
This detailed type of carving adds from £10 to cost of a plain guard, but remember, you choose what you want carving - either in detail, like Beth did for hers & Mike for the Greenman, or just give us an idea & we'll come up with the design as we did for Emily
Joe's armguard with a carving of a medieval longbow archer - this was completed with leather thong fastening but various type available
Another commission - This one is taken from the LOTR film, Boromir's armguard, taken by Aragorn after Boromir's death. Boromir's is worn for sword fighting & is pointed at both ends, this is for an archer so points wouldn't be comfortable! Initials replace the stars down the centre of the guard

Plain armguard fastened by a wrist buckle & hooks & elastic lace with tightening toggle
