Jason and Sarah are great people. Hospitality was above and beyond what I expected. Both are very knowledgeable and truly enjoy sharing this knowledge. I learn by doing, and the class was "hands-on" all the way. I left with the understanding and confidence to be able to successfully brain tan. Hope to return. Five stars all the way! grub

Jason is a very patient person. He never rushes a person . He explains in detail each step. He helps you through each step. Answers any and all questions. If you take a class here , you will leave knowing how to tan a hide. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to take a hands on class, take it here.
