Urban “Hide”away: Live Hide Stretching in Gastown
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
8 E Cordova Street
Come to the Atelier this Saturday for a rare opportunity to watch Athena stretch a ethically sourced deer hide on the city streets of Gastown.Hide stretching is a traditional practice that helps to dry out the pelt for preservation. While usually just a step in the hide preparation process, Athena’s take showcases the hide as the art piece itself.
We’ll be playing music, selling luxurious Canadian jewellery and attendees will have a chance to win their very own wishknot ring!
