Learn how to turn deer skin into soft subtle buckskin using tradtional methods. Leave with a piece of leather that will last you your lifetime, that will always feel like the most amzing piece of material you have ever touched.
This process envolves a lot of physical activiyt and getting dirty.

There are a couple bedrooms and camping availble for an extra fee. There are showers and a kitchen available at the site.
You must register by November 17th and a $200 non refundable deposite is due when you sign up. You may register via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Hope folks can make it. I know its a holiday weekend; but in the past folks complained about not having enough time off of work to take it :). Thought we'd try this. If you are sincerly interested in learning to tan but can't make it; get in touch.
