sandal making workshop at Social Studies

  • Social Studies 1659 San Pablo Avenue Berkeley, CA, 94702 United States (map)

Learn how to design and make a custom pair of wooden-heel leather sandals for yourself in Social Studies' sunny backyard.  Together we will complete the entire process of hand-making a pair of leather sandals. You can choose a very comfortable & walkable handmade wooden block heel or make a pair with a classic low heel.  After class you will have the knowledge to continue sandal making for yourself or your loved ones, plus a pair of sandals you made, customized by you and fit to your own feet.

Have a look my sandals to see examples of styles you can learn to create in class.  I will bring several leather types & colors for you to choose from.

What to bring to class: any sandals with design elements you would like to replicate, photos or drawings for inspiration, and hands that are ready to work!  Both men and women are welcome to attend.
