Teslin, Yukon, workshop teaches art of moosehide tanning
10-day workshop the biggest instructor Margaret Douville has ever taught
A 10-day moosehide tanning workshop recently took place in Teslin, Yukon, with 13 people taking part.
Margaret Douville, who taught the course, says it's the biggest class she's ever taught, with 11 people from Atlin, B.C., and two from Teslin.
Among the group were mother-daughter pair Juanita and Shayla Kremer, the latter aged eight.
The course, which took place at the Teslin Tlingit Heritage Centre, went through steps such as removing the hair, removing the flesh, and braining.
Douville said if she has no other distractions, she can prepare two hides in one day.
