Private Hide Tanning Workshop for Groups


This option is for small groups wishing to learn for the first time or practice more hide tanning together, with some help from me.

See below for details.





Tailoured for farmers, hunters, fur trappers, museum curators, natural historians,

In a private workshop, I can travel to you or you can travel to my studio in Aldergrove, BC or Saanich, BC.  You may provide your hunted or harvested skins that we work on together, with instruction and tools brought by me; or I can provide the skins from my ethically-harvested sources.

This offering is tailoured for groups of 3 or more of any skill level, including but not limited to:

  • Farmers
  • Hunters and trappers
  • School and community groups
  • Museum curators and natural historians

All those curious about learning hide tanning in an intentional curated setting are welcome to choose this option.  All hides are provided by Crowsnest from our sustainable, ethical sources.  As always, take home your own creation at the end of the workshop.


To register: a down payment of $350 is made here.  The remainder of tuition is due two weeks prior to the workshop.
