Tanning Participants will receive full instruction, hands on experience and Traditional Tanning GuideRegistration $295 / per person for the weekend. All tools and demonstration hides will be provided. Due to the lengthly process of tanning participants will not have a completed hide to take home, as it is not possible to tan a single larger hide in just one weekend while completing each step. multiple hides will be worked on at each step so you gain experience and confidence to start and finish your own at home after the workshop.

Please bring your own lunches, other dining options are available nearby.
