BUILD YOURSELF A PAIR OF NEW SUMMER READY CLOGS...

Join me on in my Bristol studio in Montpelier for a day of making and craft yourself your own pair of bespoke leather clog sandals.  This is a fun yet challenging day of learning new skills.  There is a maximum of 4 people in this workshop giving you plenty of opportunity for one to one attention and learning.  

You can customise your clogs and choose from the following -

  • loads of coloured leather in bright and muted tones
  • 2 heights of clog heel height (5cm or 8cm heels)
  • 5 styles of clog sandals (peeptoe, crossover toe, cut out toe, woven toe and woven mules)

 

This workshop requires a degree of strength in the hands and may not be suitable for people with reduced mobility or strength in their hands (cutting/hand-sewing leather and hammering in the tacks is hard work!)

DATE AND TIMINGS

Friday 21st April 10am to 3.30pm with half hour break for lunch. 

Wednesday 14th June 10am to 3.30pm with half hour break for lunch.

SIZES OF THE SOLES

Please read the sizes carefully as they may vary from your regular shoe size.  In particular, the high heel bases are very small and narrow.  You will want to add about 5mm to 10mm to your foot length to get the correct size.  Let me know if you're unsure - hello@leatherneedlethread.com.  There may be scope to change your soles on the day if you are very unhappy with the fit but I can't guarantee that all sizes will be in stock then.
