As part of our incorporation of life skills in our program, we are currently learning how to tan a deer hide. On December 3rd two of our student brought in a deer skin. We spent part of the day fleshing the hide to prepare it for the tanning process. We then soaked the skin in a salt and alum solution for a week. Today we washed to tanning solution off and stretched it on plywood. Hopefully, tomorrow we will have a finished product.
