STACE FULWILER
HANDMADE LEATHER SANDALS / OAKLAND CALIFORNIA
 I've been making sandals for four years; learning by trial and error, reading old books, and talking with the few remaining shoemakers in the Bay Area.   I teach sandal making to demystify the ability to make one's own apparel.  Anyone can experience the magic of shoemaking, using their hands to build something beautiful and utilitarian.

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 soon became addicted to the freedom that comes from making my own apparel. I continued learning through trial and error, reading old books, and talking to the few remaining shoemakers in the Bay Area.  I seek out shoemakers in my travels and have met with sandal makers in New York, Paris, and Morocco - I have many more on my list yet to visit.  The sandal makers I've met are delightful people and are often just as excited as I am to talk shop and share knowledge.   I teach sandal making workshops to demystify the process of making one's own apparel. Sandal making is a very learnable craft and I absolutely love teaching it. Anyone can experience the magic of shoemaking with the correct supplies and a little guidance; I'm always amazed at the work students create at each workshop.  I teach workshops during the warmer months throughout California and am always working on new designs in my studio.
