    Shoe Pattern Making

    Some things never change! Though shoemaking has become digitized in many respects due to the use of programs like CAD for shoe structure creation, Pattern Making stubbornly remains a physical art. Come down to Brooklyn Shoe Space for a primer on pattern design, in which you'll measure and cut entirely by hand to create the exterior of your perfect pair of shoes. This 3 hour class will teach you all of the pattern-making basics. Start by learning how to select colors and patterns that work well together. Then, learn how to measure, cut, and finally -- how to sew! During your first class you'll work on upper patterns; during the second class, you'll finish the lining and work on the sole pattern. So let's get to work, old soul!

    Alternative New York Street Art Tour

    Come along on this tour through one of NYC’s oldest neighborhoods that brings the art alive. The Lower East Side is well known for its diverse ethnic neighborhoods and astonishing street art. Historically, the Lower East Side is known for hosting immigrants coming off Ellis Island, and in the second half of the 20th century, the area became flooded with artists. The growing counter-culture population in the Lower East Side drew more and more artists. Soon the area quickly exploded with creative expressive graffiti art that illustrated the social and cultural movements that would influence American society in the 21st century.
