Join master crafter Peter Yencken to make your own leather shoes that are perfectly fitted to your feet! In this 3-session course, you will make a pair of beautiful Moccasin style leather shoes; the sole and top are made from one large piece of leather. Shoes are one of the most important and useful things to learn to make as we wear them for long hours daily. Each pair of feet is uniquely complex and individually shaped, and only custom made shoes can provide that perfect fit!
This class is for beginners - no prior knowledge and experience are required. Mature youth, ages 13-17, may sign up if their parents are sure their youth is able to do the work and is prepared to stay for the duration. All materials and tools will be provided. If you would like to take notes, bring a notebook and pen. Please bring lunch (there are also many eateries nearby) and waterbottle.
Please note that the Making Leather Shoes, Making a Long Bow, and Making a Leather Backpack courses will run concurrently, and you may sign up for only one of these three courses.
