"This course is so much more than learning the lost art of working buckskin. I found it really wholesome living in nature and so inspiring spending time around people who are so knowledgable and passionate about what they do. Jessie and Jane created a really lovely camp atmosphere, a fun way of life, and an interactive way of teaching. I learned a lot! And feel confident attempting tanning projects at home now.
Their campfire cooking is pretty delicious too!"
"I’m a deerstalker, and I wanted to learn how to use the skins so that I could harvest more of the animal, and pay it more respect by using it fully.
I’m really pleased I booked this course! Jessie and Jane know their stuff and have been following primitive life skills pathways for many years, perfecting and using their expertise.
I was able to scrape a fresh skin, then work it over the next few days, watching it amazingly turn to soft buckskin before my eyes! I required a bit of work, but the environment and great teaching and company and food meant the time flew!
I’d highly recommend this course!"
"I had an amazing week in Devon doing the brain tanning and bark tanning, learned so much and came away feeling like I can do this at home now.
Jessie and Jane are great teachers and the best kind of people,
such a beautiful location too!
I’m looking forward to doing another course with them in the future."
