Join Stace Fulwiler at Nancy’s beautiful ranch in Loomis for a day of sandal making! 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 leather, tools & supplies you'll need. View photos of past workshops & student-made sandals HERE

During the workshop, we will explore the sandal making process to make a pair of sandals that fit both your feet and your design aesthetic. 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 shoemaking, making your own sandals is a great introduction to that process!

At the end of the workshop, Stace will finish your sandals on the belt sander, refining the fit and finishing the edges.  You will be able to walk away from the workshop wearing your newly made custom sandals!


Where: Loomis, CA. Address will be sent to you upon signup.

When: 10am-3pm. Some of you may finish earlier or a little later. We will enjoy a potluck lunch, bring a dish to share!

What to bring: Bring your working hands and outfits; we will be cutting, kneeling, bending and standing during the sandal making process so wear clothing that is comfortable to work in. It’s best to wear sandals as we will be getting in and out of shoes during the fitting process. Bring a water bottle and a snack to keep you going. Part of the workshop will be held outside, so bring a sun hat if you’d like extra protection.

Workshop Fee: $150, includes everything you need to create your very own pair of handmade sandals.  All tools, leather, patterns, and supplies will be provided.

What you will make: handmade sandals fit to your own feet; made with a 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 leather and shoe supply resources, should you wish to continue sandal making after the workshop.
