This is a daily course, please bring your own food. Camping is available by request.
In this course participants will choose to make the tools needed for either willow basketry or hide tanning. For Willow Basket Weaving you can make a weaving bodkin, a wrapping iron, and a bark stripper, and for hide tanning where you can make a leather awl, a wet scraper/fleshing tool, and a dry scraper. All students should have previous experience here or elsewhere with blacksmithing or check in with us directly as this class will require a fair level experience with using hand tools. Bonus projects will be available for those who finish projects early. Both sets of projects will involve heat treatment and tempering.
