Two-day Leather Slipper Workshop

Handmade leather summer slipper... to your size

The seminar will teach the technique of making a slipper-type leather shoe with a leather bottom and non-slip sole. Hand tools will be used in the workshop. From the initial sizing based on foot measurements, the processing of the leathers (cutting, dyeing, finishing) to the final assembly with gluing and hand sewing.

What does the Workshop include?

Theoretical part

Shoemaking materials & tools: In the theoretical part of the program, the raw materials (types of leather, dyes, soles, coke glues) used in sandal manufacturing will be presented. 

Anatomy of the foot:we will talk about the anatomy of the foot and points to consider when designing and we will size each construction based on the measurements of each student's foot. 

Laboratory part

In the seminar, each participant will make a pair of leather summer slippers with a band, a leather bottom and a non-slip sole. We will start with leather handling (marking, cutting, tan finishes) and proceed to assembly with gluing and hand stitching. At the end we will make the sole from non-slip material and the models will be completed to the measurements of each student.
