I made shoes!! This past week I had the wonderful opportunity to take a sandal making class with lovely Lisa of The Shoe Camaraderie and it was absolutely amazing. Lisa is incredibly passionate about making shoe making more accessible, and it really shows in her workshop. Everything was so well thought out and simplified into achievable steps. The workshop ran for an whole day from 9:30am to almost 6pm with a little lunch break in the middle, and finishing with a cheese platter and a glass of wine. I was really blessed with the lovely group of ladies that were a part of this workshop with me including lovely Alice & Jemma – It was a big fun busy day! I made sure to take a lot of photos throughout the day so that I could give you a little peek into the process and what the workshop was like. So fair warning this will be a very picture heavy post after the jump! I feel like I learnt so much and really want to take another class.
If you live in Australia and are interested in learning to make sandals I would highly recommend her workshops – it’s absolutely worth the price and you’ll be thrilled with the end result. Looking at these shoes it still blows my mind that I made them- albeit with a lot of help! I really enjoyed learning more about shoe making and finding out what goes into a beautiful quality pair of shoes. Much like sewing, I appreciate these shoes so much for how much work went into them!
I hope you enjoy my little peek making shoes with The Shoe Camaraderie!
