Event Description

Spend the day learning how to skin and prepare the whole animal. True ‘zero waste’.

Using a beautiful Sussex deer from a local gamekeeper, we demonstrate how to skin the animal and prepare the hide for tanning, butcher the animal and provide tips on cooking and preserving the meat. We also show you how to use the bones for tools and the sinew for string. At the end of the course we’ll cook up a delicious venison steak and you can tuck in!

The course is hosted in our seaside workshop just putside of Brighton. We lay on all the campfire tea and coffee you can drink and provide snacks. Please bring your own food (which you are welcome to cook over the fire) and your own tent and sleeping gear. Or you can rent our Baker Tent or Whelen Shelter or Log Cabin and sleeping bag for £50, if you prefer.

Experience includes:
Leave with the skills to be able to process an animal at home
All the tools and materials you'll need
Tea and coffee all day - bring your own lunch
No minimum age (under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult)
