Primitive Skills: Hide Tanning

May 20, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


Before the advent of modern tanning agents, humans were turning raw pelts into functional furs using very basic techniques and materials. Learn to produce an incredibly soft, beautiful, and durable product from raw animal skin using one of humankind’s earliest tanning technologies! Utilizing materials readily available in the surrounding environment we will walk through the steps of this transformation. This two-day class will be taught by primitive skills expert, and Alone Season 8 participant, Dr. Theresa Emmerich Kamper.

$335 Members/ $370 Non-Members.
