Design and make shoes for your own feet!

During this day-long course, you'll design & create a pair of sandals for your own feet that will age beautifully and last many years.

The class will move through every step of the sandal-making process, starting off by customizing trusted patterns (or inventing new ones) to suit your feet and design preferences. Next we cut and assemble the leather pieces, paying close attention to fit, and finally attach the layers to a VIBRAM rubber sole. At the end of the day, I sand the edges for a smooth finish.

I have a wide selection of leather colors and textures to choose from. Stylistically, almost anything is possible as long as its a sandal (open toe, open heel). Generally people choose to choose to make either a buckling sandal, a tying sandal, or a slide. Take a look at my website and Instagram to get a sense of popular styles but feel free to gather inspiration from wherever and bring it along.

This class is hard work: we use hammers, utility knives, anvils, and we get barefoot! Sandal-making is easy to continue at home with a few simple tools once you have the basics down.

I've been making sandals + shoes, and teaching sandal-making classes, since 2010 under the name 'Rachel Sees Snail Shoes'. I've taught groups of designers from NIKE and TEVA, and students from Oregon College of Arts + Crafts. My aim as an instructor is to provide a fun and accessible entry-point for the shoe-curious. I love simple folk footwear and DIY everything.

Rachel was an amazing, patient and knowledgable teacher during the whole process. Because of her amazing workshop, I manage to create my very first hand crafted leather sandals which I simply adore! Definitely recommend everyone to take up this workshop! You’ll not regret (:

The perfect way to spend a rainy Portland day. Rachel is a fun teacher, and her artisan-collective space completely charming. I learned a lot and the finished sandals are FABULOUS! Be the envy of Instagram, and book this class next time you're got a day to spare.

This experience was one of the best days of my life! I had seen a pair of bright shiny hot pink and dark brown soled sandals on Rachel's snail shoe website that I wanted to make for summer and they turned out so cute! She helped me measure everything to my feet so they feel super comfy, and she even helped me make the soles have a little arch that feel nice. It was a lot of fun, and I want to maybe take another class and try some closed toed shoes! She helped me a lot with mine since I had requested to make my soles leather instead of rubber which is what the class usually teaches.. so there was more work that went into them I think, but they turned out super cute and great!! I was very happy to meet Rachel, another art student and crafty person. She put on nice chill music that possibly made time go faster. I was traveling from my home in Las Vegas, and it was just a wonderful experience to soak in some local culture! Her studio is in a gorgeous brick building and she gave us a tour of the whole inside!! I wish I had taken more pics! She took the other sandal student and me across the street to an Albuquerque-themed restaurant for our lunch break that she found and that was cool because it was delicious, and I really like Albuquerque the city. As the day ended she was telling me things I can do to improve my own instructional art videos, and it was just great to meet someone with similar interests to chat about art and life :) So ya, run! don't walk to take this class!

I truly enjoyed this class and was able to learn this skill from Rachel. She makes it simple and fun. Book the class, show up, and let your creative side kick in. Wear shoes that slip on and off easily.

This was such an awesome and informative experience! Rachel is a patient and knowledgeable teacher who has made so many gorgeous shoes. She helped me to find a great pattern and there were great options for leather and sole colors, etc. Her studio is beautiful and in a really cute part of NW. At the end of our time together, I had my dream pair of sandals! I can’t recommend this experience enough to learn about construction and to leave with your own unique pair of shoes.
