Norco will host Mass Trappers for this years workshop. This workshop was very popular the last time we ran it, pre-covid. Follow this link for picutres: https://www.norco.club/news-event-gallery/photos-and-videos-past-years/photos-and-videos-2020/beaver-3-2020/
If interested in the class, please email Wayne@norco.club . Class fee is estimated to be $65. This will cover supplies and commercial tanning of the fleshed skin, use of trapper skinning tools, and food/beverage. Beavers are provided for each student. Each student will have an unfinished fur pelt to be tanned and optionally a tail to be made into leather. For those doing home tanning or using a commercial tanning kit they buy on their own, class fee will be reduced to $25.
Later in the year, when skins are back from the tannery, we’ll have a hooping workshop for those interested in making a wall display. For those wanting to make a garment such as a hat, mitts, etc, Glacier Fur Comapny is a good source of information about fur, how many pelts are needed to make a specific garment and a source of additional pelts/skins. https://www.glacierwear.com/ and
