The Black Hills Arts Intensives included a 5-day workshop on hide-tanning. Students took three deer-hides – one already prepared as rawhide and two “green” hides that needed to be fleshed and de-haired – through the stages of soaking, stretching, fleshing, scraping, and tanning! It was a lot of work, but we had an awesome time! Avi worked around the clock to finish the first one, with the end result being beautifully tanned deerskin! Already looking forward to next year!
