People have been tinkering around in their garages for as long as garages have existed. Take your tinkering to the next level by introducing some cobbling! You could be a pioneer tinker-cobbler.
Master artisan Olivier Rabbath will teach you how to make shoes FROM SCRATCH in your very own garage!
This is a one-on-one class, so every bit of Professor Rabbath's attention will be on making sure you have what it takes! It is built for the "super speedy" -- the one who has no time to waste and wants to absorb the footwear industry like an electric shock. The fact is, when you create at that speed you are guaranteed in an immediate understanding of the whole process.
TIP: By reading the lecture in Olivier's book, "How to Make Boots from Your Garage, Volume 1" before coming to class, you can familiarize yourself with the procedure.
You'll craft your pattern, then cut and stitch it. You'll learn how to use a last, build a sole, and cement your shoe! Then you'll just have to put it on your foot and walk out of there, and you probably don't need any instruction on that.
About the Instructor: Professor Olivier Rabbath is a designer, painter, artisan, cartoonist, composer, and author. He has been designing footwear since 1988. His work has been featured in The Smithsonian.
