LA !! LEATHER SOLES + HEELS !! SAT AUG 18 @ LUNYA

320.00

Leather-sole + stacked leather heel sandal class at LUNYA

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! 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, adding nails to secure each connection point. 

I will bring a large 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!

At the end of the day, the sandals will have an uneven edge around the soles where the layers are stacked. I recommend taking these to your local cobbler where they can be “finished” for about $10. Alternatively, you can borrow or buy a table sander and sand the edges yourself! (Which i can guide you through in person>)
