Stitching and Beyond members enjoyed a day of making leather sandals under the expert tuition of Luna Newby.
It was a fun day – we all worked very hard, especially Luna! Cutting out patterns, skiving and glueing went well, but fitting sandals to a variety of feet was trickier than expected, as was remembering which way around the pieces went… We were all nearly finished by the end of the day, and Luna has generously scheduled extra time for us to come back and complete the last few steps. Looking at the wonderful footwear creations of Luna and some of her students was quite inspiring.
Looking forward to more workshops next year!
