A hands on workshop in which we’ll be tanning the hides of our 4 young billy goats. Together, 8 of us will be completing the full process of tanning ½ a hide with fur-on to take home.
Learn skills in natural tanning, preserving the hide with fur on using traditional methods and natural ingredients (as much as possible from the goats themselves, where laws permit). Expert tanner Scott Baine will take us through the methods and enlighten us with a wealth of information on traditional techniques, along with inspiration of what to make with your hide when you are done.
By the end of the day you'll have the skills to tan your own hides, and knowledge of how to source them.
This project is run as part of Street Goat’s commitment to use every part of our animals, in full appreciation and honour of the relationship between these goats and ourselves.
