Did you ever want to make leather our of a fishskin?

It is possible! During this 1 day workshop we will work on a salmonskin. We will use the fat-tanning method; one of the oldest methods to turn a raw skin into a nice piece of leather. It is not easy and takes time, but it's really worth it! The leather will be beautiful, strong and durable.

You will work with 3 fishskins, and hope to finish 2 of them. You can take the 3rd one home to finish it there. Of course you keep the rest of the skins too ;)
