SOS I: Survival Basic Training


  • DE Thu – Sun 21 – 24 July 2022 Sign up


Traditional tanning: from rawhide to suede. The transformation from a moist hide with fat, blood and connective tissue, to a soft, naturally fragrant flexible suede is the direct reward for perseverance, sweat and labor.

This course is held in conjunction with the SOS I Basic Course. In this course, the tanners work almost exclusively independently - a novelty in an SOS course - and learn primarily through practical work.
