This five day class offers two unique opportunities: an in-depth study of decorative leather techniques and the construction of one pair of high heel sandals incorporating many of these techniques.
We will use colored kidskin to construct a 'sampler' of techniques, including plaiting, weaving, inlay, overlay, reed embossing, knot tying, edge finishing, piping construction, tooling, etc.
Prerequisite: RETROFEET/SANDALS; SHOEMAKING INTENSIVE; MAKING MULES or proven experience making shoes and working with leather.
Information covered includes:
The class (limited to four students) is taught in Gaza's Santa Cruz studio about an hour and a half south of San Francisco.
The $950.00 tuition includes all materials required to construct the sampler and one pair of sandals; the use of hand tools and power equipment. Sources for tools, equipment, and materials will be given.
Once we agree upon a date for your class a non-refundable deposit of $600.00 will reserve your space. The balance is due at the first class meeting. Additional information, including a motel list, is available.
