Villa Grün, Dillenburg/Germany
In 2009 Wolfgang Fey was offered to present his craft work in an exclusive exhibition in his home town Dillenburg, in the Villa Grün. Many visitors, even from other countries, came to marvel at Wolfgang's numerous exhibits like saddles, tack, belts, bags, albums, cases, and furnishing accessories as well as displays with ancient and modern leather tools. Visitors were also able to touch and feel different rawhides that were presented in a wooden coffer. In the afternoon the World Leather Debut winner demonstrated his handicraft and answered questions to everyone interested.
