***Sign up for this workshop HERE***

Join me at Sacramento's contemporary art space, Verge Center for the Arts, for a day of sandal making!  

In this one day workshop I will walk you through making your very own pair of handmade leather sandals.  No experience is necessary, and both men & women are welcome.  You will learn the entire process of sandal making over the course of the day, using your own feet to determine fit, style and color.  Classes are limited to 8 people to allow for plenty of individual assistance.  All the tools and supplies are provided, and you'll have many different leather colors to choose from. The strap width, leather colors, and strap placement is all up to you.  View photos of past workshops and student's sandals here.

In the process of making your sandals, you will also learn basic leather-working techniques and become familiar with shoemaking tools. You will leave with your very own pair of self-made sandals and a list of shoemaking supply resources in California. Bring a friend or family member and enjoy a day of working with your hands to craft a pair of sandals you will wear for years to come.


Workshop fee: $200 ($175 for Verge Members) sign up HERE

What to Bring: Working hands and outfits! Bring snacks and a water bottle.  We will also work outside briefly when using the sandal glue, so bring a sun hat or sunscreen if you'd like protection.  If you would like to use the belt sander to finish your sandals, bring a dust mask (not necessary, I can finish your sandals if you prefer)
