PORTLAND - RUBBER SOLES - JAN 28

240.00

During this day-long course, you'll design & create a pair of sandals for your own feet that will age beautifully and last many years.

The class will move through every step of the sandal-making process, starting off by customizing trusted patterns (or inventing new ones) to suit your feet and design preferences. Next we cut and assemble the leather pieces, paying close attention to fit, and finally attach the layers to a VIBRAM rubber sole. At the end of the day, I sand the edges for a smooth finish.

I have a wide selection of leather colors and textures to choose from. Stylistically, almost anything is possible as long as its a sandal (open toe, open heel). Generally people choose to choose to make either a buckling sandal, a tying sandal, or a slide. Take a look at my website and Instagram to get a sense of popular styles but feel free to gather inspiration from wherever and bring it along.

This class is hard work: we use hammers, utility knives, anvils, and we get barefoot! Sandal-making is easy to continue at home with a few simple tools once you have the basics down.

All materials will be provided, as always.
