Specialty Workshops

Specialty Workshops: Periodically we will offer special workshops by request on a particular subject, such as hide tanning, flintknapping, bowmaking, etc.

We can also schedule customized workshops for groups of 4-5 or more, with advance notice.

For booking Edible Plant/Foraging Walks at a location of your choice, see the Education Programs page.

Braintan Buckskin Hide Tanning Class - Learn the dry-scrape method to tan a deer hide into beautiful buckskin suitable for clothing, bags, moccasins, etc. Fleshing, racking, de-hairing, braining and smoking will all be covered, bring your own hide or we can supply one. Done the old way with no chemicals, just brains and elbow grease!

Due to time and health constraints, (two shoulder surgeries) I've decided to turn over the Hide Tanning Classes to my capable assistant, Lynn Emery. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about getting started or need help on an ongoing project. If you are seeking a start-to-finish class, contact me for Lynn's info.
