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)
