This class will quickly teach you some of the basic techniques of sneaker making. This is an accelerated class! (Literally half the time of the intensive)
To make this possible there will be minimal sewing and you will be using a prepared Master Pattern.
Choices you will have: LO, MID or HI top sneaker. (See photo example for MID height!) You will be able to customize your sneaker via material choices and simple design details: Topline, Laces, eyelets, pull tabs, topstitching...
We highly recommend upgrading to the 5-day sneaker making class for elaborate designs apart from the basic designs we will work with. As we have no time, lasts will not be modified, and everyone will work with Serena lasts.
THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!
