Biography of Leather Artisan - Ron Tidrow

Ron Tidrow's journey began over 50 years ago when he observed a family member blowing
glass to create neon signs.  This experience led Ron to experiment and develop techniques working with leather, both original and useful to the present time. Visit his website, Arrowsmith Leather to see more of his amazing leather products and handbags. 

He quickly became a craftsman during the Canada-wide arts and craft explosion during the 1970's-80's which lead to his extensive show and exhibit history.  Ron's participation included juried craft exhibitions, such as the Toronto, One of a Kind (20+ years), Signatures-Ottawa Christmas Craft Sale (25+ years), Nepean Christmas (15+ years) shows, along with numerous outdoor festivals throughout Ontario.

Ron continues to express his passion of working with leather, combining bold designs with traditional colours.
