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.

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.
