Originally from Quebec, Meredith was introduced to hide tanning from the skilled and talented Mara Cur from "Fern & Roe".
"My first ever skin was a deer hide that we turned into this super soft smoke tanned buckskin. That was 4 years ago. Since then, I’ve tried many different techniques, different skins from squirrels, minks, raccoon, goats, and sheep. Lots of trial and errors which makes me comfortable enough in my skill to be sharing it with others to start this journey into tanning."
