New dates! These workshops will now be held in April, see below for the new schedule.

Please do not purchase this product together with other products, and only purchase it separately.

You can make your own leather sandals!

We will be holding a sandal making workshop by artist Rachel Corry.
Rachel Corry is the author of The Sandalmaking Workshop: Make Your Own Mary Janes, Crisscross Sandals, Mules, Fisherman Sandals, Toe Slides, and More and owner of Rachel Sees Snail Shoes. Based in Santa Barbara, California, she creates custom-ordered shoes as a shoemaker and runs numerous shoe-making workshops.

In this workshop, we will be making leather sandals. When Rachel sent us photos of examples of her work, we were surprised to see so many different designs!  Participants in the workshop can pick from a range of different designs. Unlike when using a simple DIY kit, this is a sandal workshop where you can make sandals from scratch while considering your own preferences for a truly one-of-a-kind pair.

*3 colors are available: natural, brown, and wine red. The insole is only natural.

(The photo is a sample. Due to the natural material, the color may vary.)
