What you'll learn in this shoemaking class:

This is a simple 1 day workshop for any person looking to learn the art of shoe making. You may choose a date from the drop down menu or decide later with the TBD option. Men’s & Women’s style and sizes available. Class size is 4 persons max., book all four seats for a private class!

This beginner level course is designed so easy a caveman could do it. Students will learn how to hand craft a pair of shoes in their desired size, and walk away with their finished pair! You will learn how to size your own feet, choose from high quality leathers, and use traditional shoemaking techniques to create your very own shoes. This workshop has a maximum of 4 students so that each student will have time for individual attention.

All glues used in my studio are non toxic and leathers are ethically sourced. If you would like to use vegan leathers, please indicate so via email and I will send you a separate invoice of $50 to cover the cost of materials.

Style: Mule, pictured men & women’s style/sizing available

COVID-19 Update: All classes will now be taught in a private setting during this time until further notice. The only exception of this will be if you reach out to me personally and would like to book with a family member, significant other or close friend. My whole studio, tools, doors, most touched places will be fully sanitized before and after all workshops to keep everyone safe. I will be taking all measures to keep everyone safe while still allowing you to come learn how to make shoes, express your creativity and exercise your brains through art.

Question from Joshua W.
Can this be customized to English riding boots. I would very much like to make my own
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Joshua! You would not be able to make customized English riding boots in this class as it is a one day class. You would need to take a more in-depth class that would meet multiple times in order to make your desired shoe.
