all portland classes take place at my home workshop in North Portland, most are 4 consecutive days  and run from 9 am to 5ish pm each day. All materials and tools are provided and you walk away with a pair of custom made shoes that you built from start to finish. All upper leather used is American bison (the very best stuff!!)

NOTE: classes are limited to 5 students each and they fill up fast!

    I am sincerely impressed with your works. I believe n creating works of art with your hands. I bake cakes and I love woodworking. I am blown away by your expertise with leather. You are truly gifted. I would love a pair of your shoes.
