This program takes you beyond basic tanning to cover hair on as well as both wet and dry scrape traditional brain tanning. Taking it a step further, the details of clothes making are taught including shirts, dresses, leggings, and accessories. Stitching techniques and options will be thoroughly covered as well as custom pattern making. After finishing a tanned hide in class, each student will put their freshly learned skills to practice as they make a custom mitten pattern, piece it together and securely sew the seams. Students can choose a fur or wool finishing cuff to their newly made mitts. We hope you will join us to learn the numerous details of tanning, clothing making, taking with you a useful pair of mittens!
