This is a class for beginners to intermediate participants.
In this class you will learn all aspects of tanning hides using animal brains or lecithin and olive oil. Starting with fleshing and graining the hides, you will learn softening techniques as well as how to smoke a hide to finish it allowing it to be washed multiple times. If you wish to just leave your hide white (ceremonial) and not smoke it, that is possible also.
Learn to trouble shoot and tan consistently soft hides every time.
Hide and all materials and tools provided for the class.
