Salmon People Bracelets - with Rebecca Graham

Are you a descendant of salmon people? Salmon are kin for the Indigenous People of the rivers and coasts of this land. Salmon were also at the heart of cultures throughout Asia and northern Europe in ages past. Re-awaken your connection to the land and show your love for the salmon by creating a beautiful bracelet out of salmon leather that you tan yourself.

In the morning of this two-part workshop, artist Rebecca Graham will discuss methods of skinning and fleshing fish, and lead participants through oil-tanning a salmon skin.

In the afternoon, she will help participants craft their own snap cuff or 'magic braid' bracelet out of their finished skin. All materials provided. Please come on time and bring your lunch!
