5-day intensive workshop:

DATES: SUNDAY 8/19 - THURSDAY 8/23

TIMES: 10am - 5/6pm

WHAT IS INCLUDED: Tool kit, Materials and totebag

You can make shoes, boots, or sneakers of your own design! This will be a cemented shoe construction class, and is aimed for beginners and or repeat students.

As this is a traveling class, we will be jumping right into patternmaking from DAY 1 after a crash course on the importance of lasts, and how to measure your feet. Then, you will draw on your last to see your designs in 3D, then create a paper pattern of your designs. Second day, you will cut your materials, and prep and sew your uppers. Third day, you will make midsoles, finish sewing, and start lasting. Fourth day, you will finish lasting. Fifth day, you will sole your shoes. A full 40 hour week!

You will go home with a tool kit that includes patternmaking tools, and basic shoemaking tools, such as shoemakers tape, and lasting pincers and French hammers. With this kit, you will be able to go home and start making shoes!

BKSS will bring Upper and lining leathers but variety and supplies are limited compared to our home-base in Brooklyn. We will bring insole and outsole materials. Once you sign up, you will be asked which shoe size you will like to make, and what style shoe, so that we can find the right last for your shoes, and determine what type of outsoles to bring with us.

Depending on the class consensus, we will either go on, or send you on a material shopping trip to the shoe supply store or the leather store. Materials purchased on the trip will be the student's responsibility. All materials are included in this class, excluding hardware and special leathers that you'd like to purchase at the store that is specific to your designs.

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU ALL! and share with us your shoe-love stories!
