Historic Commemoration of Barking Traditions
The tradition of bark tanning and the use of bark mixtures has a long history in Newfoundland and Labrador, and the old iron bark pot on the landwash was (and is) a reminder of our ancestors’ skills.

Bark was used by Indigenous peoples and by settlers alike for tanning hides, making fishing nets more durable, and colouring everything from sails to clothing. Today, the old tradition of barking is finding new life as a new generation of craftspeople embrace this ancient technique.

Join Heritage NL and The Rooms as we celebrate barking and bark tanning as the newest addition to the Provincial Historic Commemorations Program’s list of Distinctive Cultural Traditions and Practices.
