Fish Skin Tanning

Kind of Event
Organised by
the Netherlands

Have you always wanted to learn how to tan (fish) skin? During this day workshop we will start making salmon leather. We do this by using fat-tanning: one of the oldest methods of turning rough skin into a beautiful and similar piece of leather. This method is not easy and requires a lot of time, but is certainly worth the hard work. The leather becomes incredibly beautiful, strong and durable. With a properly tanned salmon skin you can make anything: from bags and bracelets to entire clothing items. We are going to work with 3 fish skins, the aim of which is to get 2 skins ready and you can finish the 3rd at home. (depending on the weather)
