Our ancestors utilized many parts of deer they harvested. Many products such as candles, skin moisturizing heel balms, soaps, fire starters, etc. can be made from deer fat (tallow). Come learn how to convert deer fat into a soothing heel balm and candles!

At this 1.5 hr. hands-on workshop, you will bring and work with frozen deer fat from deer you or your classmates have harvested this season. We will have fat available to demonstrate techniques and you will take home a sample of heel balm, a candle, and a fire starter. A handout with recipes and directions for heel balm, body butter, candles, and fire starters will be provided.

Wear old clothes and bring a rubber apron, if you have one. A heavy trash bag can be used in place of an apron. Bring along the fat from your harvested deer to add to the melting pot in class. After harvesting and skinning your deer, remove the hard, waxy fat from the back of the deer and around the kidneys and freeze. We will not be using the soft fat from around the meat and bones for this class.

There’s nothing more exciting than catching a fish on a fly you tied with your own two hands. In this four-session course for beginners, you will learn how to use the fly tying equipment, basic fly tying skills, and learn to tie two different flies at each session.

MDC will provide participants with a vise and tool kit to use during the classes along with all of the materials needed for each fly. If you have your own vise and tools, you are more than welcome to bring them to use.

Registration is required. Please be sure to register each person in your group separately.
