This event will happen on Zoom on Thursday, January 19, 2023, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m CST.  This is a repeat of a session held in December 2022.  I will share the work I do with hides in the Winter, specifically frost scraping and freeze drying them.  I will present slides with text, images, videos, blab a lot about the hide work, and have time for questions from the participants.
