Making Leather: traditionally by braintanning

Howdy Yall,

I'm free for the next couple of weeks so I am planning on doing quite a bit of braintanning. Thus I thought it a great opportunity for any one who is interested to learn how to make their own leather out of deer skin.
My thoughts is to do it like an informal class.
If you are interested, contact me and come on by. You can help out and participate in what ever stage I'm at and learn the process and tricks as we talk. And come as many times as you want.
Or if you are wanting to make one yourself, all yours to keep, you can come by and I can step you through the process.
I'll be working most days from April 7 - April 23, with a few exceptions and no sundays.
If you are wanting to make one for yourself and keep it I would have to charge $210 for all the time and supplies. But you get to pick your schedule.
 If you would like to just come by learn and participate a donation for the day would be appreciated.

Please contact me, text is probably the most eficiante way with me.

    Howdy, I hope it's cool that I make it tomorrow...I'm gone for about a week, but will be back the following week and would love to continue learning. Would that be okay?

      Loretta, Its come and go. Learn what you can kind of class. It takes about 10 work hours to tan a hide but it's spread out in a couple of days due to wait time.
