Intro to Bootmaking Workshop- Session 3 (Multiple Days)

Instructor: Connie Puetz | Session 3: Two Weekends:  Nov 25/26 & Dec 2/3

In this course, you’ll create a pair of basic leather lace-up boots for your own feet based on personal measurements you provide in advance of the course. Patterns will be drafted for you in accordance with these measurements.

In this challenging four-day course, students will learn the foundation for most theatrical or street styles of shoes and expand on the following skills:

  • Discover the anatomy of a boot and learn how all the parts fit together
  • Cut pieces of leather for the upper of the boots, and sew them together
  • Attach insoles to the lasts and pull the leather uppers over the lasts
  • Add soles and heels to the boots

The end product will be a pair of boots students can proudly wear home.

Note: Students will be required to use machinery such as industrial sewing machines and power tools. Physical dexterity is required.

Cost: $650.00
