Making Shoes

Last week I took the awesomest class ever with Sarah Rotering, shoemaker (or cordwainer if you feel like using a term that no one else has heard of). It was fantastic! Sarah is a fabulous teacher, the course was worth every penny - and I even commuted from Barrie to Toronto for it every day (yuck).
We made everything from start to finish, gluing, hammering, designing our way from bits of leather to complete actual custom-fit wearable shoes. What a fantastic experience!!!
