2 Day Sandal Making Course - £200
Ermington, Devon 23rd & 24th June
Running 10am - 5 pm both Satuday & Sunday
These are 2 day weekend courses in which you will create your own unique leather Sandals.
We provide all the tools and materials & we have plenty of different colours & textures of leather which can be used to create your perfect three strap sandal as well as leather paints to decorate with surface design.
~There are very limited spaces with only 5 places per course~
We encourage you to develop some ideas about the surface design you would like on to your sandals before arriving, bringing any imagery or reference material which will help you create a pair of amazing sandals which you will cherish for ever.
We have to limit any customisation to aesthetics only due to time constrains - all footwear made on our courses will be built around our standard last shape, we cannot in the time frame reasonably accommodate pattern changes for extenuating foot shapes. - sorry for the inconvenience.
You can make your sandals from a U.K. size 3 - 13

We have so often been on courses where you learn techniques using expensive tools and machinery only to find back at home and wanting to develop our skills we were at a total loss to continue;
So we have decided to teach the course using a selection of inexpensive hand tools which with only a little investment means that you could carry on developing your skills if so desired.
