Buckskin via Wet Scrape Method

Bring a raw deer hide through a series of stages: fleshing, wet scraping, bucking, fat liquoring, softening and smoking, to tan the softest and most durable of natural leathers, the supple and strong buckskin. Learn all the gifts of the deer in the form of nourishment, bone for tools, sinew for strong thread, and hide for glue and clothing. Over the course of three days work with a partner and split your hide into a beautiful leather fabric born of tender loving care, the deer, and a good bit of shared elbow grease. On the fourth day use your buckskin to craft your own handmade garment, pouch, or handbag. Bring home a timeless treasure that is 100% natural and biodegradable.
