Event description

Description

Join us for a weekend of epic skilling-up and deep nature immersion in this hide tanning workshop.

We will be tanning with the braintan (smoketan) method, an ancient and versatile technology with modern utility. Along the way we will learn the history of hide tanning, variable methods, and explore the cultural and modern contexts of this craft.

The hides in this workshop are wild deer skins, salvaged from hunting season. Each one was skinned with the tanner's pull method to ensure the highest quality hide.

Each participant works with their own deer skin, from start to finish.

As always, take home your own buckskin creation at the end.
