Class is in session! Join us for a fun (and safe!) three-day shoemaking workshop, where you will get to craft your own shoe from start to finish.

We take your safety VERY seriously and will be offering the following measures to make sure we are observing best practices in COVID-19 protection:

  • Class size limited to 8 students to allow for social distancing
  • All students, as well as instructors, will be required to wear a mask
  • Socially distanced work stations with hand-sanitizing stations

You will have the opportunity to create your own style from one of these classic designs:

This shoemaking workshop is four days long (10am-5pm each day) and will be divided into three sections:

  • Pattern making / Upper Construction
  • Lasting
  • Assembly / Finishing

Students will have the opportunity to learn all four during the course of the workshop.

Pattern making: This course will teach you the process of developing your designs from 2D concept drawings to 3D, then back to 2D flat patterns. This includes taping, last measuring, and base pattern development.

Upper construction: In this first section of the course, you will focus on Cutting, Skiving and assembling the upper as well as all the components needed to start lasting. Basic Courses will have a pre-made upper in leather. VIP courses uppers will be made during class.

Lasting: In this section you will learn how to last your upper onto your shoe last and assemble all components together to create your final shoe. This course will cover pre-molding counters and outsoles and lasting.

Assembly / Finishing: The final section of the course will cover the process of adding the finishing touches!

Course cost: $1225

All materials are included in the price of the course. Upper patterns are pre-cut and made of 100% pure leather. Standard heels and soles are provided.
