This is a working session of the shoe making class- Once you have your pattern you made in the previous class, you can cut, skive, prepare your leather to sew, then sew, and last, and sole. There's many steps to the making. Please be prepared to schedule 4-6 sessions of this working class to finish your pair. Each class, is a maximum 4 people. You will have individualized instructions depending on where you are in the process of making shoes.
Highly recommended to take the first two classes. The Shoe Making zero zero one and the pattern making class.
As you know from the first few classes, please email [email protected] if you have any questions. The day of the class, I will meet you in front of the front door 5 minutes before the class. If you are early or later than that time, please call 646.338.8671 or 718.218.7111 to be buzzed in.
I hope to see you in class!

I got hooked on shoe making through Emily Putterman who still teaches at many design schools, like Parsons/New School, Pratt, JCC. She is "The Shoe Making Teacher" of New York. (Now there are many more...) I followed her around town with her classes. She taught in a way you can make shoes at home. So I kept on making at home.
Once deep into making, you want to learn more to perfect the craft. I learned and am still learning pattern making from Eustace Robinson who learned at Arsutoria and was the head pattern maker at several companies. I also took Master shoe maker Marcell Mrsan's classes. Keep on learning!
The circle of shoe makers has been growing, and the number of machines in my posession also grew. After working with and producing shoes in China, came to a realization of the first love of "making" shoes. Now I work out of my studio, making custom order shoes.
