Join Stace Fulwiler at Otherwild for an evening sandal making workshop! In this workshop you will learn to make your own custom pair of handmade leather sandals.  No experience is necessary, Stace will bring all the tools & supplies you'll need.  View photos of past workshops & student-made sandals HERE and read student testimonials HERE

We will reference a handful of simple sandal designs as a jumping off point for making your pair of dream sandals. You can choose to keep it simple and make the design as-is, or modify & customize your design to your heart’s content! If you are set on creating a specific design, we can usually make it happen.

Stace will bring the basic leather colors: black, espresso, caramel, and natural vegetable tanned leather, as well as an assortment of colorful leather & suede.

Over the course of making your own sandals, you will also learn the basics of leather crafting and you will become familiar with the essential tools and supplies of shoemaking. If you have ever wanted to learn how to make your own shoes, this sandal making workshop is a great introduction to the processes and tools you would use to construct shoes.

At the end of the workshop, Stace will take your sandals back to her studio to sand them down on a belt sander, refining the fit and finishing the edges.  Your finished sandals will be brought back to Otherwild the following day for you to pick up at your convenience!


Where: Otherwild, 1768 N Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027

When: Sunday, May 5, 7pm-10pm (some of you may finish a little earlier or a little later) Snacks will be provided and we will enjoy a little sparkling wine later in the evening to celebrate making your first pair of sandals

What to bring: working hands and outfits!  We will be cutting, kneeling, bending and standing during the sandal making process so wear something comfortable.  It’s best to wear sandals as we will be getting in and out of shoes during the fitting process.

Workshop Fee: $225, includes everything you need to create your very own pair of handmade sandals.  All tools, leather, patterns, supplies, and materials will be provided.

If you are BIPOC and cannot afford this workshop, please email for a discounted ticket rate. Discounted rate tickets are limited. Sign up HERE

What you will make: handmade sandals fit to your own feet; made with a round-toe leather sole, 3/8" stacked leather heels and leather uppers.  You’ll also take home an outline of the sandal making process that includes ‘care and feeding’ of your new sandals and a list of local leather and shoe supply resources, if you wish to continue sandal making after the workshop.
