    • This is a simple 1 Day Shoemaking Workshop for any person looking to learn the art of shoe making. Men’s & Women’s style and sizes available.

      Students will learn how to hand craft a pair of shoes in their desired size, and walk away with a finished pair! You will learn how to size your own feet, choose from high quality leathers, and use traditional shoemaking techniques to create your very own shoes. This workshop has a maximum of 4 students so that each student will have time for individual attention.

      All glues used in my studio are NON TOXIC and leathers are ethically sourced. If you would like to use vegan leathers, please indicate so at checkout or via email and I will send you a separate invoice of $50 to cover the cost of materials.
