Natural Sheepskin Tanning: Live at Knit City Virtual


This workshop is happening as part of Knit City Virtual 2020, streaming from Vancouver BC on Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories.

Date and Time: Sunday, October 4th at 12:00pm



Join Mara Cur of Crowsnest Wildcraft for a journey on tanning sheepskins through natural, ethical, and sustainable methods.  This workshop will offer a history of human and sheep co-habitation and cover the three categories of natural hide tanning: bark tanning, smoke tanning, and mineral tanning.

Sheepskin tanning is an accessible project for beginner tanners to start at home, and it is a powerful way to build a deeper relationship with this mild but mighty animal.
