Learn to make fish leather using traditional tanning methods using tree bark. We will extract tannins from vegetation, remove scales from raw fish skins, and cure skins into fully tanned leather. Option to dye skins in vivid colors offered on final day of class. Students will be provided with two frozen salmon and tree bark free of charge. You are encouraged to bring 3 more frozen fish of your own (salmon, trout, pike, grayling, burbot, or whitefish) on the second day of class.
