Hide tanning is the textile craft that creates leather, buckskin, suede, sheepskin, and more. It is a transformative process unlike no other.
Over five months, we will meet online for hide tanning methodology, trouble-shooting, storytelling, and community connection. Sessions are once or twice per month, with drop-in Q&A meets in between.
Instruction is a mix of live video and self-guided learning. Videos will be recorded so you can plan your hide time around your own schedule.
The five hide tanning sessions will each focus on one fundamental method of natural tanning, while bridging to the next step in a continual learning process. We start with the basics and move into more complex methods. Plus, two sessions on craft-making with your own tanned hides are embedded into the program.
