Get ready for spring with a new pair of tech sandals, made and customized by you! Stace Fulwiler Wood will lead you through the process of making a pair of sandals that are a perfect fit for both your feet and your own aesthetic.

In this workshop, you will start by choosing from a handful of sandal designs that you'll build on a black foam rubber sole. You’ll add a black or veg tan leather insole, and choose your nylon & elastic straps from a wide assortment of colors & prints. You will be able to mix & match as much as you want to create a one-of-a-kind pair of sandals. Stace will show you how to place your straps so the sandal will be comfortable on your foot, then you’ll glue everything together and voilà! You’ve made your first pair of sandals.

This simple method of sandal making is an excellent introduction to the basics of making your own footwear, and you will be able to replicate it at home with a few simple tools and locally-sourced materials. You will be able to walk out of the workshop wearing your brand new self-made sandals!
In the notes section before you check out, please let us know your sandal size so we can prepare the soles before the workshop


What to bring:

• Just yourself and your feet! I will provide all the tools and materials.
• Please note that you will use your own feet to create your sandals, so please come prepared to kneel, bend and squat during the process of making your sandals.
• If you cannot comfortably do this with your body, please let us know ahead of time so we can prepare.

Stace Fulwiler lives and works in the Sierra Madre, and creates sandals inspired by Mediterranean sandal ateliers, beatnik sandal-wearers, California culture, and sustainability. Stace has a degree in painting and was getting ready to embark on a Ph.D. program in nutritional biology when she found sandal making. She decided to shift her path to focus on how creativity, rather than food, can nourish a person. Stace began teaching sandal making workshops to demystify the process of making your own footwear and to enable others to reclaim the joy of using their own two hands (and two feet) to make their own sandals in one day. Stace teaches workshops in both northern and southern California during the warmer months.
