Have you ever wondered how to make beautiful leather traditionally, and how to honor animal hides with a plethora of uses? Today, we’ll take hides that were harvested during the fall hunt, and honor them by making sure none go to waste. We’ll scrape them clean, demonstrate how to shape some into parfleche, a drum, and other rawhide tools. Next, using an ancient egg recipe, instead of brains, we will convert a hide into tanned buckskin leather!
Join us for this or any of our special classes in Puyallup celebrating Independence Week. Adults and families with children are invited to join us. This class is being designed and taught by Wolf College apprentices under direct supervision of founder Chris Chisholm. Expect a class that provides you with generous information, hands-on experiential learning, and heart-felt inspiration. Pre-payment is not required to RSVP but we will ask you to fill out a post-class evaluation, and make a $15-$25 contribution afterwards based on your financial situation and your level of satisfaction with instructors in training.
