LA / The Deep End Club / Saturday May 19 2018


Deadline to sign up is May 15!

Let’s make some sandals at Tennessee’s incredible pop-up in Echo Park, The Deep End Club!

In this one day workshop, you will make your very own pair of handmade leather sandals. No experience is necessary, I'll help you through the entire process.

We will use leather soles, a stacked leather heel, and leather uppers. I will bring all the tools, supplies and many different colors to choose from! You will have the choice of making a toe ring sandal, a sandal that buckles at the ankle, or a two / three-strap slide sandal. Many modifications are possible within these “beginner’s” designs! The strap width, colors, and strap placement are all up to you. View photos of past workshops and student work here.

Over the course of the day, you will learn how to make sandals that fit your feet. Making sandals entirely from leather, including the soles and heels, is a traditional way of shoemaking that has been practiced for centuries. In the process of making your sandals, you will also learn basic leather-working techniques and become familiar with shoe-making tools. You will be able to walk away wearing your newly made sandals that you can wear for years to come!
