Braided Buckskin/Barktan Hatbands and Belts

Join me as we sit by the river and braid beautiful brain tan and bark tan leather from our deer relatives. I will teach you a 5 or 7 strand braid for either a hatband or a belt. This will be a simple class where we can ground out together and share stories and songs as we braid this amazing leather tanned in traditional ways. I will talk to you about all of the steps taken to turn the hide from skin into leather and share some photos of this very in depth process.

 

Stacy Liane Lippincott will be sharing Braided Buckskin/Barktan Hatband and Belts.
