STACE FULWILER
HANDMADE LEATHER SANDALS / SANDAL MAKING WORKSHOPS
 Based in Sacramento, Stace Fulwiler creates sandals inspired by Mediterranean sandal ateliers, beatnik sandal-wearers of yesteryear, and California culture. With a degree in Fine Art and continuing studies in science & nutrition, she is interested in the body and its interaction / reaction to apparel.  Stace began making sandals in 2013 and immediately realized that working with her hands was essential to her emotional health and vitality. She fell in love with the sandal making process; working with the body, leather, patterns and tools to create something sublime, personal, and evolving.   She continues to learn through experimentation with new designs, reading old books, and talking to shoemakers in her travels. The sandal makers she meets are delightful people, openly offering advice and sharing knowledge.  She began teaching sandal making workshops to demystify the process of making one’s own apparel, and to enable others to reclaim the joy of using their own two hands (and two feet) to finish a project in one day. Sandal making is a very learnable craft and Stace absolutely loves teaching it: anyone can experience the magic of shoemaking with the necessary tools, supplies and a little guidance.

About Stace

Sandal Making is my way of reconnecting with my creativity, working with my hands, and sharing the knowledge I've learned along the way

I started making sandals 4 years ago while taking pre-med classes.  The freedom that comes from making my own footwear is invigorating and addictive, and I find great satisfaction in sharing what I've learned in the process of creating traditional leather footwear.

 

 

I started making sandals 4 years ago and have continued learning through trial and error, reading old books, and talking to the few remaining shoemakers in the Bay Area.

I teach sandal making workshops to demystify the process of making one's own apparel.  Anyone can experience the magic of shoemaking, using your hands to create something beautiful and utilitarian.
