Sheepskin tanning at The Organic Centre

Join Lucy and explore the ancestral art of sheepskin tanning. You will learn how to clean, scrape, make and apply tanning solution, rack and soften your own sheepskin to take home with you. The art of hide-tanning has largely disappeared in Ireland over the past few decades, with only a handful of people dedicated to its revival through teaching. Come and awaken your ancestral muscle memory and remind our hands and bodies of this ancestral craft. Respect for the animal and the gift of its skin to keep us warm will be practised throughout this process. Please be mindful that this is a very involved and physically demanding process. Limited to 5 spaces only
