Off the Wall Fall 2024: Intro to Bootmaking Session 3 (4 days)

Instructor: Connie Puetz  Session 3:  December 10-13, 2024 (9am-5pm)

Create a pair of basic leather lace-up boots for your own feet based on personal measurements.

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. Leave a note with your shoe size at checkout.

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.

Classes run Tuesday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
