Shoemaker Spotlight — Bonnie Andrus 👢
We are so blessed with amazing members at Brooklyn Shoe Space! Meet one of our gems, Bonnie Andrus!
Bonne first came to intern with Keiko in her former shoemaking studio six years ago. After a brief return to her hometown in Los Angeles, Bonnie came back to NYC just in time for Keiko to open Brooklyn Shoe Space. Originally assisting Keiko in shoemaking, she now teaches the 6-Day Shoemaking Intensive, Stiletto Making, Bag & Wallet Making, Mules & Slides, Sandals, and Espadrille Classes. She has helped with Brooklyn Shoe Factory projects and continues to work closely with Keiko every stylish step of the way.
A founding member of Brooklyn Shoe Space, she knows the ins and outs of shoemaking and handles the nitty-gritty, heavy-duty tasks of the space. You can check out her own amazing designs on her website here.
We ❤️you, Bonnie!
