In this workshop, you will make your own sandals from foam rubber soles, leather insoles, and an assortment of nylon & elastic straps.

Where: The Other Art Fair, Barker Hangar, 3021 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica, CA

What to bring: Just yourself and your feet! I will provide all the tools and materials.

What we will do: During the workshop you will choose a leather insole color and cut out your insoles. You will choose which design you will make, then select the color of straps you would like to use. You will use your own feet to adjust the straps and glue them in place to create the perfect fit.

Your soles will be made from black foam rubber, and I will bring an assortment of colors for your leather insoles. I will bring black, cream and pistachio elastic for the straps and an assortment of colors of nylon straps (webbing). If you have your heart set on a particular color, please let me know beforehand so I can set some aside for you…otherwise the material choices are first come, first serve.
