Hide Tanning and Parfleche Seminar in Puyallup
Have you ever wondered how traditional peoples make beautiful leather, or how they honor animal hides for a plethora of uses? Today, we’ll take deer and elk hides that were harvested during the fall hunt, and honor them by making sure none go to waste. We’ll scrape them clean, shape some into parfleche, a drum, and other rawhide tools, then follow an ancient recipe using eggs instead of brains to convert at least one of the hides into tanned buckskin leather.
