This one day class on May 1st will cover all of the steps in naturally tanning a sheepskin using an emulsified oil and smoke, otherwise known as brain tanning or smoke tanning. This will be a demonstration workshop where you will see the whole process and get to work hands on with hides at different steps in the process, but you will not be tanning your own sheepskin all the way through. You will leave the workshop with all of the knowledge you need to go home and tan your own sheepskin. I will also have some inexpensive raw sheepskins available for sale at the end of the workshop.
Somerset is about 15 minutes from the farm and there you will find various hotels and bed and breakfasts. On-farm camping is available with primitive accommodations and you will need a good tent and warm sleeping bag.
All meals will be on your own. We ask that you take any trash with you when you leave.
We ask that you leave your dogs and drugs at home. We are a working farm with livestock.
Tours of the farm will be available as we have down time throughout the process.
$200 with a $50 deposit to reserve your spot.
There are a limited number of spots available and we will close registration when the class is full.
Please send full payment by March 17th.
We have a limited number of scholarships available, information below the registration link.
