Participants will have a 3 day intensive class, learning and doing everything needed to create soft and durable buckskin leather. Not only will the structure of hides be discussed in detail, but also the many factors involved in this transformative process. Hides will be provided with the materials fee, so you will come away with your very own buckskin. It will have gone through the process of scraping, removing the grain, dressing with brains and/or eggs, softening, and smoking.
Cost: $180 plus $20 materials fee.
Date: August 5-7, 9am – 5pm each day
Location: St. Paul (register for details)
Instructor: Scogin Zimmerman
We recommend bringing a lunch and water container. Other than that, all tools and materials will be provided. In order for us to prepare enough materials, the registration deadline is August 3rd.
