Here I am in Asland, Oregon working with Bill Shanor at Bonney & Wills. We are 2 days in to our 7 day intensive shoe making workshop – the fashion pump. So far I’ve learned to measure the foot, select and customize a last, make an insole pattern and design a shoe.
You can follow my daily journey on my travel blog . I’ll be expanding on each day of shoe making fun for the next few weeks here. I’ll trace the birth of my first pumps in-depth with lots of images and no holds barred commentary.
