Private Virtual Sandal Making Workshop

At Stace Fulwiler
Do you want time, space and one-on-one assistance in making a pair of your dream sandals? Would you like to provide a virtual team-building experience for your employees? Would you like to make sandals in a private group of your family or friends? Then a private workshop is perfect for you. Learn to make your own pair of handmade leather sandals in this four hour Virtual Sandal Making Workshop led via Zoom by Stace Fulwiler Wood. In this workshop, you will make your own sandals using traditional techniques, tools sent directly to your door, and your choice of leather. The versatile simplicity of your leather sandals will provide years of wear and they will become more beautiful with age, forming to your feet and acquiring a rich patina. We will make sandals with leather soles, leather heels, and leather uppers. Here are some examples of what students have made in our Virtual Sandal Making Workshops this year. Some history about leather sandal making: Bespoke leather sandal shops once dotted coastal towns throughout California, though this craft has become rare as shoe production has moved away from artisan methods & materials. These days, one has to travel abroad for custom leather sandals. Stace works to revive this traditional way of shoemaking by teaching sandal making workshops throughout California - and now, anyone in the US can learn through her Virtual Sandal Making Workshops. What we will do: On Sunday, September 13th at 12pm PST, we will meet on Zoom and Stace will teach you (and eight other people) how to make your own handmade leather sandals in the comfort of your home. All the tools and supplies you will need will be sent to you before the workshop. This workshop will take around four hours, and Stace will be there with you every step of the way until you’re finished. During the workshop, you will learn: How to form your leather soles to have arch support How to cut your leather straps & insoles How to assemble & fit your sandals to your feet How to attach a leather heel How to use shoe glue (all-pu
