This workshop is a powerful challenge. Attempting the very physical act of transforming raw animal skin into useful leather is an ambitious undertaking! We provide nutritious meals, cozy lodging, a welcoming campus, knowledgeable and skilled staff, good tools and high quality materials. You provide the elbow grease, effort and labor. With focus, determination and dedication it is possible to walk away with a finished hide. We will do everything in our power to help you succeed. As we are all students, at different learning levels, based on diversity of skill sets, age, past experience, exposure and physical prowess, each participant will have a unique experience.
This particular weekend workshop begins at 10am on Friday and ends at 4pm on Sunday. The entire time is required. White tail deer hides will be provided from tagged deer harvested and taken to a meat processor. They are hides that would otherwise be discarded. Our intention is to honor the sacred parts of each animal and use them to their highest purpose. (This class does not cover hunting animals. Hunting classes are offered on a case by case basis, during open season to licensed hunters ages 15 and older by Eustace. To learn more about that, please leave a message at (828) 265-2267)
