Make a fully wearable pair of shoes in 3 hours! Add some great trousers and a top – outfit done.
In this course, we’ll start with pre-cut leather components. You’ll select and cut your upper from a variety of fashion and upcycled leathers. Then style your unique design. You’ll learn how to fit and last your upper to the insole. Combine the outsole and heel components to complete the bottom. Finally you’ll skive and glue the upper to the bottom, finish your edges and apply pressure to secure the bond. You’ll leave with a basic understanding of shoe making and your unique mules ready to wear in 24 hours.
Don’t worry, you’re in good hands and no making or crafting experience is necessary! You are encouraged to bring buttons, beads or other interesting gewgaws to customize your shoes.
We’ll celebrate your hard work and success with a champagne (or sparkling non-alcoholic beverage) toast and a fun fashion shoot featuring your “hostess with the mostess mules”.
Each $250 ticket includes instruction and materials to make one pair of leather mules, light bites and complimentary champagne or beverage! Limited spots available.
