7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Take a deep dive into the gifts and teachings of the Salmon.

Each month, guild members will explore a theme that will deepen our individual and collective creative practices as tanners and land based skillholders. This is a facilitated opportunity for us to learn and experiment together, share our discoveries, and foster creative accountability through a supportive community process of regular virtual gatherings. Bring your curiosities but also be ready to share your knowledge and experience!


This guild is open to those who already have experience making fish skin leather and who want to expand their practice of honouring the salmon and their teachings. Some experience with natural dyes, sewing and animal textiles is an asset. Note: This is NOT a formal class where you will learn the process of tanning fish leather from beginning to end.


Led by Janey Chang, each month a theme will guide our practice. Generally, Class 1 each month will be focused around thematic sharing of what we already know and Class 2 of each month will be sharing what we have learned since the previous class. During portions of our classes, you are welcome to work on your current crafting projects while we talk and share.
