Community Learning Network and visiting students from Fordham University enjoy a morning of service work at Barrio Unidos in Chimayo.
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.

He is also available for one on one classes.

Fairfield College students spent their spring break learning about the community in Santa Fe through serving, spending time in nature, and listening to the elders of the community. Their days consisted of working on local farms and preparing the soil for spring, hikes in historic ruins, and time with local elders and youth. Students focused on lessons of sustainability, balance, humility, and being present.
