Wildheart Nature School:

Wildheart Nature Classes

Wildheart Nature Classes are outings that provide adventure rich learning opportunities for children ages 4 1/2 – 10. We venture to nature areas within and surrounding Bend, Oregon, allowing participants to experience and study the land they call home. Participants document their experiences in a journal that contains photographs, drawings, and personal creative reflections. Please visit our sister site for the schedule of upcoming Nature Classes:

Dreamer Leathercraft:

Custom Leather Creations

We process raw deer hides into braintan leather using the natural method that the indigenous peoples of this region have used for centuries. The braintan process creates a softer, more breathable, and comfortable product than commercial leather. We then craft our leather into moccasins, shirts, dresses, pants, purses, pouches, drums, rattles, and more! Our leather crafts are always custom made for the best fit. We also offer “Make ’em yourself kits” that provide materials and instructions so that you can make your own leather creations! Browse through our selection of products by clicking the tab above called, “Dreamer Leather Craft.”
