You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection.
This class will be held via Zoom unless otherwise specified.
This class is a 2-hour theory class on footwear structure, resources for materials & how to measure your feet. Get inspired and design your shoes-. After this class, you will be motivated to find lasts that fit your feet, and create your designs!
If you register for the 5 or 6-day workshop, the intro class is included in the total price. (Please sign up only to the 6-day workshop if you intend on signing up for the 6-day)
For other footwear courses, it is highly recommended (not a requirement) to take this course as it covers a lot about basics of footwear and shoemaking lingo. It will give you a little time in between this class and your 3-day class you intend to take, to prepare supplies or order custom lasts ahead of time.
Maximum 2 people in this short group class at the moment due to the national rise in COVID cases. If we don’t have a sign-up 2 weeks in advance, we will cancel the group course on the calendar.
For a zoom-class, we will send you the printed out pdf, and a shoemakers tape, and a pencil. If you ship the shoemakers tape back, you will get a $12.50 deposit back for the tape. If you decide to keep the tape, you won’t get the deposit back.
All intro to shoemaking participants will then have life-time access to the Online Introduction to shoemaking course where you can revisit the content at your own pace.
This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

CLASS MAKE-UP POLICY
We are a small studio and reorganizing and rescheduling classes is very difficult to accommodate. Please make sure to gear up, stay healthy, and prepare to come to class. Please respect the teacher's and other students' time and energy they bring to the classroom.
For multiple-day classes, if you have to miss a day, you are responsible for getting the information that will catch you up on missed information during the class hours. Any additional time you will need to finish the project due to your absence shall be signed-up as a studio-hour session at a $150/day rate.
If you are entitled to a refund, or have any questions, please email us at [email protected], minimum 10 days before the class. Any last minute cancellations will not guarantee a full refund.
We take your safety seriously. With COVID-19, circumstances may change quickly, at the last minute. Please communicate with us, if you are traveling from afar. We expect that you will be healthy, and that if you feel sick slightly, you will let us know and we will postpone the course. We will have hand sanitizers, surface wipes, we will wash hands frequently, and each student will have their own tool box to use during the course. Any shared equipment will be cleaned in between use.
