With no experience necessary, you will learn all the way from raw animal skin using all natural ingredients found in most homes to preserve and practice with your own leather tanning projects at home.

Your main facilitator Josh learned a lot of the trade from Lotta Rahme, Master Tanner in Sweden, Sigtuna whilst returning from the Arctic of Lapland, Sweden where it all began...

Since returning home to Australia a few years ago, Josh hasn't looked back and now spends a lot of his time preserving and sharing this ancient craft so that others may also learn this incredibly enriching and practical craft for themselves.
