About the event

About the event

Come spend the weekend with your partner, learning the traditional method of tanning coyotes using animal brains (lecithin) and smoking. 

This hands on weekend workshop will guide you through each step in tanning coyotes the way many of our ancestors did without the use of chemicals. Each couple will work together tanning their own coyote (provided and included) they will take home.


Traditional tanning is when animal hides are preserved using a lecithin and smoke, leaving a durable and soft leather material that is water resistant and washable.They are preserved in a non toxic way using natural materials and elements.

Traditionally tanned hides are completely washable, non toxic, and essentially a carbon neutral product that you can enjoy for decades.

Smoking finished hides will set the tan on the final day and discussion on care and cleaning, along with tips on sewing and crafting with tanned furs will round out this the weekend.

Upon completetion you will leave with your own tanned fur and feeling confident in starting your journey into tanning at home, and step by step instructions you can refer to later. 

Each day runs from 9:30am - aprox 4pm depending on the group progress.

Please bring your own lunch and some inside shoes you dont mind getting messy.

Day 1 will be working indoors only. Day 2 will be a combination of indoors and outdoors so bring appropriate clothing.
