The Deal

  • $39 for four one-hour slipper-making classes (a $79 value)

Students learn to craft comfortable footwear in small classes that focus on machine use and production techniques. Each student creates a plaster cast of their own feet, enabling them to sew a pair of slippers custom-designed to fit their paws. Classes take place in an actual shoe-production facility.

How To Make Boots From Your Garage

Olivier Rabbath of How To Make Boots From Your Garage outfits his students with both the knowledge and skills to create footwear that help them comfortably walk about town in style. An experienced shoemaker who was included in the 2012 Smithsonian Craft2Wear exhibit, he leads a number of production classes that show students how to create their own pairs of boots, slippers, or shoes from leather and other materials. His goal for each class is to make his students so efficient in the footwear-creation process that they can stop buying shoes from retailers or even become skilled enough to earn a steady living and eventually quit their jobs fighting crime at night. When not hosting classes, Olivier's workspace serves as a full shoe-production facility for himself and other professionals.
