A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending one of Rachel Corry’s leather sandal making workshops at Moonrise Creative here in Victoria. Moonrise Creative is a beautiful space in Fernwood, one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Victoria. And I can’t say enough about the workshop itself. Look below, in one day I came home with a pair of these and this skills to make more. I foresee many more to come, today I am wearing my second pair and am working on a third.
My first pair of leather sandals.
Here I am working on them. There are many steps, including drafting the pattern for the uppers and the soles, cutting, glueing, skiving, scratching, nailing and more glueing.
And, here are all the wonderful creations made by students and Rachel.
