LA !! LEATHER SOLES + HEELS !! SAT MARCH 31

300.00

// Leather-sole + stacked leather heel sandal class at MT WASHINGTON POTTERY // (now in Monrovia)

So I almost *Never* teach the leather sole + heel technique when TRAVELING AWAY FROM MY STUDIO because its hard to A) source the soles + heels most places and B) cut the soling without a special tool-- but! Beth from Mt Washington Pottery really wanted to so--! A) sourcing is easy in LA and B) we can just take our time cutting the soling and it will be fine!

We’ll explore every step of the sandal-making process, starting off by customizing trusted patterns to suit your own feet and design preferences. Then we’ll cut and assemble the leather pieces, paying close attention to fit. Next we’ll attach the layers to a heavy leather sole and stacked leather heel. 
Im going to bring my table-sander along so we can clean up the edges together: you can watch me and choose whether to try it or not.

I will bring a selection of leathers to choose from: natural, dark, and a color! This class is hard work: be prepared to use utility knives, adhesive, hammers, wooden mallets, shoe anvils, and to get barefoot!

SATURDAY, 10am-5pm (with a break for lunch around 1)
AT MT WASHINGTON POTTERY STUDIO in Monrovia, CA.. exact address TBA

max 6 participants. no cancellations.
