Traditional Tanning Workshop

9am Saturday 28th October – 5pm Sunday 29th October 2017
Monkerai (near Dungog) NSW

 

At this weekend workshop you will learn practical skills of traditional hide tanning that can be done in a home environment using all natural ingredients and everyday materials and tools.  You will assist your instructors as they demonstrate each step of the process to tan a complete goatskin into soft breathable leather. After practicing on the goat skin, you will fully tan a rabbit pelt to take home.

This course is run in conjunction with skilled traditional tanner Ei Yang, from Renourish Rewild.

It does take time, but leather tanning is a personally rewarding and useful self-sufficiency skill.

 

Fully catered weekend with camping accommodation (bring your own camping equipment or stay in a natural shelter)

All materials supplied

$295 per person
