Bootmaking Classes


Build your own custom designed and fitted shoes or boots – instruction by Lorna Trigg in a small group setting at Fire Om Earth Studio.

The first in our series of Boot making/Shoe making classes is Dec 1 – Dec 7 – a 7-day intensive. (Additional sessions of Winter 2021, for one day a week (10am – 4pm) and running for six weeks, will be posted later).

Draft, design and construction of short or full length boots, using high quality leathers.

You will learn how to draft for your foot size and fit, creating your perfect, always-wanted boot. The soles are Vibram which have a good tread and are perfect for Eureka walking, or hiking.
