What we’ll do

This is a one day experience where you will get to try your hands at an ancient art of leather making! The full process takes several days to complete, though we are setting you up to experience the whole process in one day! You will get to scrape the hair, work in the oils, soften the skins and see how we smoke the skin to preserve the work done to soften it. Hides may be available to purchase…

What else you should know

All of the hides used are collected from processing facilities that would otherwise be throwing them away. We do not hunt and are offering honor to the life that was held within this animal.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
We will provide a light lunch for a mid day break. Local cheese platter, crackers, fruit, farm fresh egg salad and nuts.
Drinks
Water, tea and coffee will be available throughout the day.
Equipment
We will provide all the tools and equipment for the workshop

What to bring

Clothing appropriate to being both indoor and out in all weather.
Good foot wear, we are a working mountain farm with hilly terrain.
