Janey Chang


Janey Chang is an Artist + Educator, Fish Skin Tanner + Revivalist, Mother + Human Being on a path of remembering how to be human and alive through the (re)learning of ancestral skills. She is a first generation Chinese Canadian woman living on beautiful Skwxwú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh Territory at the foot of the mountains and close to the ocean. Many of her teachers and mentors have taught her what it means to truly connect to the land in deep ways that have encouraged her to explore her own cultural heritage. Janey work with fish leather and has, through trial and error, reclaimed or rediscovered tanning and dying processes to yield her signature rainbow of colours of fish leather.
