Join me on in my Bristol studio 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.   The class size is limited to a maximum of 4 people to ensure you get plenty of one to one attention! 

YOU WILL LEARN

You will first cut out the leather uppers from a pattern before making stitching holes and buckle holes with specialist leather tools which are provided.  You will then sew on the solid brass buckle before glueing the leather to the wooden soles.  Finally, you will hammer in solid brass tacks to attach the leather to the soles. Build yourself a pair of new summer ready clogs!  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/sewing leather and hammering in the tacks is hard work!).
