Janey Chang joins us to do a quick dive into how to tan fish leather using tea leaves (or other tannin sources). We also chat about her introduction to fish skin tanning and ancestral skills in general, why she loves ancestral skills, oil tanned fish leather, natural dyes, teaching others and nature connection.

I loved the enthusiasm that Janey brought to the conversation!

Even if you’ve never tanned anything, if you take a listen I’ll bet you have some plans to remedy that in your future!
