OAK AND SMOKE TANNERY
Welcome to The Oak and Smoke Tannery - the home of our Natural Tanning and Traditional Leatherwork
Our passion for tanning has arisen from our love of nature and the natural wild world.
We tan beautiful, high quality leather and fur using traditional, organic methods and we run practical, informative and lively courses that bring tanning alive.
Our aim is to revive the art of leather making and inspire a love and respect for the incredible wild animals we share this planet with.
The tanning processes we practise use natural ingredients – locally harvested tree barks such as Oak and Willow, oils and Smoke.
