Earth Skills Series: Brain Tanning Demo/Lecture

This is a class through EXCO. I am facilitating a class on traditional Brain Tanning of animal skins. Even though this process usually takes days, I will give a demo on most of the steps involved in taking a deer hide fresh from the animal and turning it into beautiful functional buckskin. There will be an opportunity for folks to help in some of the process, in particular of the breaking of the hide. This is a free 2 hour class! Come join us for some great conversation and a glimpse at this honorable skill of creating non-plant based material used traditionally as clothing, footware, lodging, etc.!

    I've done some work with brain tanning. It'd be fun to come and learn more about different methods, but I have to work that night.
