Learn how to make a custom pair of ballerina flats or smoking slippers from start to finish! Throughout this workshop you will be taught traditional hand crafted techniques and will be guided through the entire design process step by step. 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!
