Hide Tanning Workshop August 19-21, 2016

 

Duck Creek Farm will be hosting a down-home hide-tanning workshop, August 19-21!

This three-day intensive will involve preparing, curing, and transforming a raw deer skin into smoke-tanned buckskin, and each participant will bring home their own creation.  Instruction will also include discussion of variable tanning methods, history, lore, and introduction to craft-making.

There is availability to camp at the farm for off-island participants, and access to an outdoor kitchen and amenities for all.  Snacks will be provided during the day.

Tuition is $300, including a $50 deposit.  Camping is an additional $17 per night.  Worktrade positions and bursaries are available.

For more information and to register, email crowsnest.wildcraft@gmail.com.

We are excited to welcome Meg Cur from Crow’s Nest Wild Craft to teach this workshop.  Meg is a hide tanner, hunter, and homesteader living in Desolation Sound.  She is a settler on traditional Klahoose territory, who strives to live and work towards decolonizing relationships.  She brings a wealth of knowledge to her craft and a fun and engaging style to her instruction.
