Tanning Deer Skins with Oak Bark

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Using the bark of an oak tree that fell down during a recent storm, leatherworker Katy Warriner guides us through the traditional process of tanning deer skins. It's a complex process with many different stages, but she explains how you can do it yourself in your own garden, creating leather that will last you a lifetime.
