The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) is hosting a fish skin leather workshop this month.
Learn the process of transforming raw fish skins into a beautiful, durable textile that can be used to make clothing, pouches, wallets, footwear, art, and anything you would use leather for.
In this two-part class we will explore tanning with tannins and fats using simple and natural ingredients found in your kitchen. You will know everything you need to know to have your own Home Tannery and enjoy a new connection to an old ancestral skill.
Includes fish skins, tannins, tools and supplies. Each person will take home at least 2 pieces of salmon leather.
This event is one workshop divided in two parts on Saturday, November 13th and Saturday, November 20th
Register online to participate. Tickets are $130 for non-members, $120 for members, and $100 for Indigenous peoples
