Fish Skin Tanning at Kith Homestead



Join us for the day with the wonderful Lea Eyre from Forest and Feather as she teaches you the art of turning raw fish skin into beautiful leather. You will process the skins together and as Lea teaches you how to make your own natural tanning solutions. You will then learn how to stretch and soften your leather to make a perfect material for sewing crafts.

An ancient skill which is so rewarding, learning the full circle of gathering, processing, and making, closely connects us to ourselves and our land.
