A leading teacher in the artisanal craft of shoemaking presents an inspiring step-by-step guide to making sandals, featuring 14 of her original contemporary designs. Custom-fit for comfort, custom-designed to suit personal taste, and stylish and satisfyingly DIY? Shoemaking checks all the boxes! Making shoes is a surprisingly accessible and increasingly popular craft, and with this photo-rich guide, even a beginner can make a comfortable pair of sandals in the course of a day with just a few simple tools and materials. From setting up a workshop and refining a design to making uppers, attaching soles, and adding finishing touches like buckles or studs, The Sandalmaking Workshop takes readers step by step through the process of creating modern leather sandals that are stylish and comfortable. The book includes traceable patterns for 14 of author Rachel Corry’s original sandal designs - both open-and closed-toed styles, including mules and slides - and covers a range of techniques so readers can build their skills and stretch the creative possibilities with each new pair they make. AUTHOR: Rachel Corry has made sandals her specialty since 2010 when she discovered that no one was teaching sandalmaking on the West Coast of the U.S. She now teaches workshops and private classes to everyday crafters as well as footwear designers, fashion students, and the shoe-curious of all ages. In addition to selling her own line of custom shoes, she sells DIY sandalmaking kits. Corry has a broad online following on Instagram, on Skillshare, and on her website, rachelseesnailshoes.com. Her studio workshop is in Portland, Oregon.
