About This Class

In this class, you'll learn 3 major skills: patterning, working with leather, and basic shoe construction. You can do this by using your own feet, and only a few basic tools.

The class is geared toward those who have an interest in DIY design, fashion design, leathercraft, and shoemaking. No prior experience necessary, but a familiarity with apparel/patterning/leather a plus.

Sandal-making is a great entry point to shoe-making of all kinds, and is a very rewarding skill in itself. The pride in making your own footwear is priceless.

Quick and easy way to learn shoe making!
This is a very practical class! Rachel explains everything from A to Z, and uses very minimal tools to craft the sandals, making it VERY doable for anyone at home.
