the class was fantastic. I had alot of fun and the instructor was very patient. The only thing I would change was changing the class title to jewelry and accessory making

This was an absolutely stellar experience. Sarah, the owner and ever-so-lovely artist watched over and guided the madcap grouponics who arrived with the patience of an angel. She courageously allowed us access to a veritable Universe of tools and leather pieces, inviting full creative freedom while still offering specific guidance and information. 4.5 stars from me. JIll Siler. I'd love to show you what I made!

What a great experience! Sarah and her shop are as interesting as her instruction!

From Our Editors

Sara McIntosh—the master cobbler behind the Chicago School of Shoemaking—draws on more than 35 years of experience in her craft. Among the things that make the school unique is that they teach their own version of the out-stitch shoemaking technique. Preferred by artisans who prize sustainability over industrial methods, that approach adapts easily to smaller shops with very few elves.

Sewing machines and wooden tables await eager hands inside the school. While an exhaust hood keeps the air fresh, students work away at footwear ranging from moccasins and sandals to desert boots. Instructors also teach leather-working techniques that produce stylish jewelry and handbags.
