The ancient art of tanning hides

Tanning hides with the animals brain is an ancient and very effective method to produce soft and durable leather. Leather created with this technique can be processed further to comfortable clothing, bags or other artifacts. From cleaning the fresh rawhide (deer) all the way to the finished, tanned leather, we will teach you all tasks step by step. Everyone get’s to take a piece of leather home eventually.

Course language

We'd like to draw your attention to the fact that our courses and seminars are usually held in german language! If, however, a high number of people book in who don't speak german, we are willing to hold a separate course for the respective group. In addition and independently from our program, it's possible to use our area for your very own seminars, meetings, workshops, events and much more!
