Description

Leather from the Sea...

Making leather from fish skins has been done in cultures all over the world, from Asia to Europe to Turtle Island; it was done commercially in Europe and North America during hard times in the early 20th Century, and is now practiced by small tanneries in Europe and Australia serving the artisanal and luxury goods markets.

This free ‘cooking-show’ style workshop will give you a feel for why fish leather is so amazing: you’ll get the chance to scrape a fresh skin, and work a pre-tanned skin til it’s soft and dry. All skins made at this workshop will be used in the Land & Sea show at the Roundhouse Community Centre in fall, 2018.

Workshop is free, but pre-registration is required

Offered in partnership with Skipper Otto's Community Supported Fishery as part of the Land & Sea project, funded by B.C. Arts Council, City of Vancouver Cultural Services and Vancouver Park Board.
