Learn how to make a pair of women or men's Desert Boots from start to finish! Throughout this workshop you will be taught traditional hand crafted techniques and will be guided through the entire design process from scratch. You will also learn how to design and make a pattern with the use of a shoe last. Once your pattern is complete, you will cut, sew and assemble your pieces together using hand sewing and machine techniques. By the end of the workshop not only will you walk away with new found shoemaking knowledge but also a new pair of custom designed shoes made by you!

- "last" in your size for you to use during the workshop
