Learn to make yourself a pair of durable, comfortable, custom-to-your-feet leather sandals with non-slip rubber soles. This type of sandal is most easily replicated at home with very few essential tools and supplies.  No experience is necessary, Stace will be there to help you through the entire process. We will use patterns for designs that are simple for beginners to master. You can choose to deviate from the designs in strap width, shape, placement, and color as much as you like!  View photos of past workshops and student-made sandals here.

In the process of making your sandals you will also learn basic leather-working techniques and you will become familiar with shoemaking tools. You’ll be able to walk home in your custom-designed sandals, along with a list of shoemaking resources in California. Join us for a day of working with your hands to make something beautiful and utilitarian; sandals you can wear for years to come!

What to Bring: Working hands and outfits! We will be kneeling, getting barefoot, crouching, hammering and making all day.  It's best if you wear sandals since we will be getting barefoot frequently. We will work outside while using the glue, so bring a sunhat/sunscreen if you would like some extra protection. If you would like to use the belt sander at the end of class (not necessary, Stace can finish your sandals for you), it's a good idea to bring a dust mask. *

* Due to the length of the workshop we will take a short 30 minute lunch. Please bring a bagged lunch or there are also a few walkable options in the neighborhood. Light snacks + drinks provided.

Stace Fulwiler began making sandals 4 years ago and continues to experiment with new designs, materials, and shoemaking methods. Once she realized how teachable this craft was she set out to share the skills she learned over years of trial and error.  She never tires of seeing the joy students express when they are finished making their first pair of self-made sandals. She teaches workshops in the warmer months throughout California. See more @stacefulwiler
