Wild Series Courses
Beautiful footwear made sustainably from natural materials has been worn by human beings for thousands of years. In this class students will create a pattern customized to their own feet, and learn to craft a pair of short moccasins using genuine brain-tanned buckskin and vegetable tanned leather. This will be a two piece style moccasin, with a harder sole for longer wear. The foundations of this pattern can later be applied for making many other styles of moccasins, including boots of all lengths.
