Join Lucy and explore the ancestral art of fish skin tanning. Lucy will demonstrate in this online webinar how to transform a fish skin into a soft, durable and waterproof material. Making fish leather is a truly alchemical process and it is very manageable to continue to explore and deepen your love of this skill at home. We will be exploring vegetable/bark tanning in this process and you will learn about the vast array of wildly and domestically available materials useful for tanning, including how to process and prepare them. We will also explore ways to transform your tanned skin into something you can carry around with you for years to come. Respect for the animal and the gift of its skin to keep us warm will be practised throughout this process. Fish skin tanning is very accessible to people of many different abilities.
Lucy will host a 40 minute webinar exploring this skill and then will be doing a live Q & A at the end.
From 7pm- approx 8.30pm.
